Chabad Holding High Holidays Services at Farmington Polo Club

This year Chabad of Greater Hartford will host a High Holiday experience at Farmington Polo Club in Farmington, CT. The services are FREE of charge and open to the entire community.  Registration is required. Donations are appreciated.

The services are designed to make everyone feel welcome and at home. The prayers, conducted with Hebrew/English prayer-books, are lively, engaging, and inclusive – spiced with inspiring tunes and insightful explanations throughout – allowing all to absorb the experience at their own level, regardless of background and level of observance, in a non-judgmental atmosphere. They will be hosted by Rabbi Shaya and Shayna Gopin of Farmington Chabad.

There will also be children’s program that will include:
Children’s Prayer, Happy Birthday to the World Celebration, and Special Children’s Entertainment with Coach Milton.

The Farmington Polo Club is located at 162 Town Farm Road in Farmington, CT. Services will be held Saturday, Sept. 16 and Sunday, Sept. 17, beginning at 10 am for all ages and the children’s program at 10:30am. Shofar blowing will only make place on Sunday this year, at approximately 11:30am.
