Happy New Year!
Join us for the High Holidays at Chabad Center for Jewish Life

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

Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey, recommit to G‑d on Yom Kippur.

Join us this year to celebrate together in our synagogues, in our communities—and with your pre-holiday preparation online.

Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!

We Saved You A Seat. 

The prayers are warm. The melodies are timeless. The people are friendly. The kids have a program. And everyone feels at home.

Welcome to high holiday services at Ohr HaTorah Synagogue. Where we already saved you a seat. No tickets required, no membership required.

Services conducted in English and Hebrew, with simultaneous insights and explanations into the prayers, practices & rituals. Special children’s holiday program & service.

 While tickets aren't required, it would be helpful if you let us know that you'll be joining us. 


Kids' Program
Led by our experienced and energetic Channie Weiss, we will provide fun and educational programs for your children while you attend services. Each group will enjoy age appropriate games, stories, discussions, prayers and songs.
Programs runs from 10:00am to 1:00pm

Tashlich Service
In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, the entire community joins together in a proud processional for the observance of tashlich. Representing the themes of renewal and rejuvenation, this tradition also has a way of demonstrating a spirit of communal solidarity as young and old march and sing together while en route to perform a fascinating mitzvah.


Holiday Appeal
Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. "Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree".
