High Holidays
at Chabad of Oyster Bay
Message from the Rabbi
We at Chabad of Oyster Bay join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5778.
Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey, and 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.
Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!,
Rabbi Aaron & Chana Shain

In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, the entire community joins together in a proud procession 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.
