Chabad of New Canaan will be hosting High Holiday services at the New Canaan Nature Center.

The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashanah begins Wednesday night, Sept. 4. Rosh Hashanah evening services will take place 7 p.m. Morning services will be on Sept. 5 and 6 beginning at 9 a.m. During morning services, both days, the Shofar will be sounded at 11:30 a.m.

Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, begins the night of Friday, Sept. 13. Services are Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 9 a.m.

Chabad's services are "user-friendly," making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the beginner and the advanced. Song, commentary and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books enable those of all backgrounds to become active participants in the services.

One of the main attractions of Chabad's High Holidays at the nature center is the children's program, a full schedule of supervised activities for children aged 3 to 11. The children's program is held throughout the duration of services. The children get to experience the holidays in their own special way. The program includes nature walks, songs, stories, drama skits, discussion groups, refreshments, games and prizes.

The services are arranged under the leadership of Rabbis Levi and Michal Mendelow, who co-direct Chabad of New Canaan, which offers a wide array of opportunities for people to access their tradition through classes, holiday events, family and children's programs, a Hebrew school and more.
