Happy New Year!
Join us for the High Holidays at
Chabad of Uptown Chicago

Rabbi's Message
We at Chabad of Uptown 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 communities—and with your pre-holiday preparation online.

Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!
