Happy New Year!
High Holidays: Chabad Center for Jewish Life
The Jewish home is the most important institution in Jewish life. It is a sanctuary for our physical wellbeing and our spiritual development. The synagogue and the Jewish school educate, inspire and reinforce Jewish life. Yet, the home is the core where Jewish values are instilled, nurtured and developed.
This year, for circumstances beyond our control, G‑d has willed that we reclaim our homes as the center of Jewish life and that we transform the home into a holy and purposeful dwelling place, where we share space with G‑d. 
This year for the first time, we'll be having a Shofar Service in the 3 Different Public Parks! 
Sunday, September 20th at 5:00PM


  • Davie Park ~ 4635 Pineville-Matthews Rd, Charlotte, NC 28226
  • Carmel Park ~ 2365 Carmel Road Charlotte, NC 28226
  • Boyce Park ~ 300 Boyce Rd, Charlotte, NC 28211

Rabbi's Message
We at Chabad of Charlotte join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5781.

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!

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
