(Courtesy of Valley Chabad) With the pandemic keeping many people away from the indoors in public settings, Valley Chabad has found creative ways to stay connected with the community this high holiday season with various options for all.

For Rosh Hashanah there are three options:

Valley Chabad will be constructing a huge 6000 sq foot tent that will ensure ample space for social distancing during prayer. All health and safety precautions will be taken. There will be three staggered services dubbed “Short, Shorter and Shortest,” ranging from 3 hours to 20 minutes.

“This has been a challenging year for our community and the world,” explains Rabbi Drizin, executive director of Valley Chabad. “We are excited to be offering a safe and comfortable space for our community to come together and pray for the high holidays this year, It is our hope that this coming year will be one of health, happiness and prosperity for all”


All social distancing rules will be adhered to. As always, Chabad is open to all regardless of affiliation and there is no charge. This year due to space constraints and planning, advance registration is mandatory. Only residents of the Pascack Valley and Saddle River communities may book online, otherwise please call our office to register. Location and details will be provided upon registration.

Secondly, on Sunday, September 20, at 5pm, there will be a 15-minute, family oriented “Shofar in the Park” at the Marc Rinzler Memorial Field on Old Mill Rd Woodcliff Lake. All are welcome. Registration is not required.

And Third, for those not comfortable coming out Chabad has arranged High Holiday Kits for families to be able to celebrate the holiday in the comfort of their own home.
