Join us for the High Holidays

Safe, Shady & Short 

We will be offering in-person outdoor High Holiday Services in the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Held under a canopy for shade, will be conduct an early morning traditional  service and Family abbreviated services consisting of select pivotal prayers, the Torah reading, the sounding of the Shofar on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah, and the recital of Yizkor on Yom Kippur. 

The following pointers are critical with regard to these services:

We will be adhering to all LA County health guidelines for maximum safety and precaution. This includes socially-distant seating and wearing of masks.

There is a 50-person attendance limit for each service. As such, to accommodate the maximum number of participants, we will be holding the aforementioned services three times throughout the day.

In keeping with Chabad’s welcoming policy, we’ve always provided ample seating for reserved and walk-in participants alike. Unfortunately, given the circumstances this year, all attendance must be by RESERVATION ONLY, as this is the only way we can follow the guidelines and keep each service within the 50-person limit. We sincerely apologize but we must insist that only those with prior reservations attend. 

Early reservations are strongly encouraged. Once a service time-slot is completely reserved, attendees may only select from the remaining available services. We do anticipate that all slots, of all services, will be booked, so the earlier you make your reservations, the more time options will be available to you.
