OUTDOOR ROSH HASHANAH/YOM KIPPUR SERVICES – SAFE, SHADY AND SHORT

Chabad will be offering in-person outdoor High Holiday Services in Agoura Hills and Oak Park. Held under a canopy for shade, these will be abbreviated services consisting of select pivotal prayers, the Torah reading, the sounding of the Shofar on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah, and the recital of Yizkor on Yom Kippur. 

The following pointers are critical with regard to these services:

We will be adhering to all LA County health guidelines for maximum safety and precaution. This includes socially-distant seating and wearing of masks.

Due to social distance seating, there are strict limits to our attendance capacity at each service. As such, to accommodate the maximum number of participants, we will be holding the aforementioned abbreviated services several times throughout the day.

In keeping with Chabad’s welcoming policy, we’ve always provided ample seating for reserved and walk-in participants alike. Unfortunately, given the circumstances this year, all attendance must be by RESERVATION ONLY, as this is the only way we can follow the guidelines and keep each service within the 100-person limit. We sincerely apologize but we must insist that only those with prior reservations attend. 

(As noted on the rsvp form, reservations will be accepted for those requesting flexibility with regard to the suggested per-seat donation.) 

Early reservations are strongly encouraged. Once a service time-slot is completely reserved, attendees may only select from the remaining available services. We do anticipate that all slots, of all services, will be booked, so the earlier you make your reservations, the more time options will be available to you.
