Rosh Hashana Evening Services
In anticipation of the upcoming Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah (September 9-11), "Chabad Lubavitch of Iowa City" has announced its High Holiday Services schedule. Services will be "Warm, Friendly and Traditional” according to Chabad's Director, Rabbi Avrohom Blesofsky. Lubavitch of Iowa City is part of a global, Jewish, umbrella organization, which offers various religious oriented programs, with the objective to bring an awareness and excitement of Judaism to others. Unlike many congregations, membership is not required to join. All are welcome, free of charge, regardless of background or affiliation. Prayer books are in Hebrew and have translation in English. "According to Tradition, at the New Year the Doors of Heaven are open; G-d accepts all prayers, from anyone," explains the Rabbi. "The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community." Services will be held on Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year (September 9-11), as well as Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement (September 18-19). They will be held at various times (as indicated below) at Chabad, 420 E Jefferson St.
