CLINTON TWP., NJ - Chabad of Hunterdon County will be hosting High Holiday services that are open to the community. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services will be held at Beaver Brook Country Club.

The services are friendly and welcoming and are conducted by Rabbi Eli Kornfeld and Cantor Rabbi Aaron B. Denburg.

“When I am at Chabad for the High Holidays, the services come alive and I feel connected to my Jewish roots," said Maurice Waknin of Glen Gardner. "The services are explained in English so I can actually understand their meaning.”

“I love the family service, where my children and I can ask questions and have more of an interactive prayer experience” said Stephanie Mraz of Raritan Township. "The prayers are read in both Hebrew and English and a lively commentary accompanies the service."

Chabad offers an interactive and fun family service, a teen service and a children's program for children aged 3-12.  Babysitting for toddlers is available. 

At Chabad, there are no membership fees or tickets sold for the High Holiday services. High Holiday donations are much appreciated and help offset the cost of providing for more than 300 people that are expected at Chabad during the High Holiday season. Chabad is known for its open doors and welcoming atmosphere, which allows anyone in the community to enjoy any program that interests them. Chabad believes Judaism should be fun, joyous, and easily accessible. 

Deluxe catered Holiday lunch, dinner, and Break Fast will be offered following Rosh Hashanah services and Yom Kippur services at the Beaver Brook Country Club. Many traditional holiday foods will be served. Reservations are required for the meals.
