To ensure proper safety and social distancing, we have rented The Majestic Palm Ballroom at the Sirata Beach Resort, where we will hold our High Holiday services.

Chabad High Holiday Services in S. Petersburg are awaited every year for the sense of community and the spiritual energy boost it gives people all year long.  That’s the time of year when we all charge up our batteries.

This year, we need to be creative to provide High Holiday services albeit in a safe way for all.  Our goals are to provide you with much needed inspiration and a sense of connection to the community and to G‑d as we begin the New Year.

Based on responses from our High Holiday survey, CDC guidelines, and advice from our doctors and rabbinical authorities, we will be holding services in the spacious Majestic Palm Ballroom at the Sirata Beach Resort.  Each service will be limited in numbers and in duration to ensure social distance.  A special Family program will be held at separate times for families with children.  Please  click here to read more on our guidelines and protocols required, all those who RSVP to join us for the High Holidays we be expected to adhere fully to our guidelines. 

Please help us as we prepare for you and reserve for the service you would like to attend.  Reservations are required this year as services will be capped per size.

As always Chabad will provide traditional and inspirational services in a warm and friendly atmosphere.  There is no affiliation necessary and no membership fees or tickets.  Hebrew/English Prayer-Books will be provided and  individual Kiddush packets will be distributed after completion of   services. 

These are confusing and challenging times, and any decision you make for the High Holidays will be the right one for you.  Everyone has their own set of circumstances that will dictate their comfort level with attending in person services this year.  We want you to have the tools to celebrate the High Holidays in any way you feel is safe.

To that end, Chabad will also help provide you with tools for doing the holidays at home. Click here for all the tools you'll need for the Holidays at home.

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful year ahead- sweet, happy, healthy and meaningful!

With Love, Rabbi Alter and Chaya
