With Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur approaching, Chabad of Sunnyvale invites you to share the High Holiday Services with us as we herald the start of 5782.  

Each year, Chabad of Sunnyvale opens our doors as wide as possible to enable as many people as possible to gather at this important time of the year. With the emergence of the Delta variant (safety) and the County’s Guidance to require masks for indoor gatherings (comfort), the near-consensus of the community feedback has been to keep the community safe and comfortable by holding outdoor services.

The following policies will guide us towards a safe experience

Masks: Being that we are outdoors, masks will be optional for all who are fully vaccinated.  If a mask will make your feel more comfortable, please wear it!

Seating: There will be a strict limit on the number of seats that we will be able to safely accommodate while allowing ample spacing. Therefore this year, as last year, we will require seats to be reserved in advance for all attendees. To that end, a modest contribution of $100 per seat will serve to both confirm a seat at ALL the services and to help defray the costs of the services. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, contact Rabbi Hecht to arrange.  

Children: Children are welcome to join the children's programs that will be held on the First Day of Rosh Hashana and on Yom Kippur daytime (see schedule below). Children ages 12 and up for whom a seat has been reserved are welcome to join the services provided they remain seated with a parent at all times and wear a mask if unvaccinated. If your child is younger than 12 but will be able to sit in their seat at all times, please e-mail the office to discuss.

“Shofar in the Park” on Rosh Hashana afternoon, Tashlich at the Community Center,  and the "End of Yom Kippur Meet-up & Shofar Blowing" at Serra Park are an excellent way to involve the children in the Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur communal experience.
