The High Holidays are a soulful and rejuvenating time; a season during which we get that “Jewish recharge” for the New Year.

At B’nai Abraham Chabad, we’ve always prided ourselves on offering uplifting and inspiring services that are open to all. This year, we’ve been presented with a unique set of challenges, but challenges and obstacles only strengthen our resolve.

Knowing how important these days are – and how this year we will all need that connection perhaps more so than any other – we will be offering several options and avenues of participation for you to enjoy a memorable high holiday experience.

  1. You are invited to stop by the shul to pick up a free High Holiday handbook.  This includes a comprehensive guide filled with select prayers, anecdotes, traditions, and a step-by-step observance checklist. If you do not have a Machzor (prayer book) at home, we suggest that you print out this Machzor companion before Yom Kippur.

  2. You are welcome to view our Pre-High Holiday Virtual Event, featuring meaningful melodies with our Cantor and timely messages to prepare for the High Holidays!

  3. If you wish to memorialize your loved ones in this year’s “Virtual Yizkor Book”, please complete the form, including the full names of the ones you wish to remember, the full name of the person or family making the dedication, and a check in the amount of $18.00 for each person to be memorialized. The names of those we commemorate, as well as those who remember them, will be given a poignant, permanent, and prominent place on our shul’s website. To participate, please click here to be redirected to the online Yizkor donation form. You may also mail in a check to B’nai Abraham Chabad, 527 Lombard Street, Philadelphia PA 19147 with the names of your loved ones.

  4. To register for our meaningful Yom Kippur services with restrictions, please click here.  Please note that space is limited and we will be having two simultaneous services upstairs and downstairs.  You will be assigned to one of them when you arrive.


For further information, or to make phone reservations for the above, please call 215-238-2100. May the Almighty bless you and yours with good health and a sweet New Year. May He bring an end to this pandemic, and may we all experience revealed goodness and blessings in the New Year 5781!
