High Holidays at Chabad

We at Chabad join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5780.

This is the season that is the "engine" that propels and guides the journey that is the coming year. It’s an opportunity for growth, inspiration, and renewal. Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey, and recommit to G-d on Yom Kippur.

We look forward to celebrating together as a community -- and with your pre-holiday preparation online at www.ChabadWinnipeg.org.
