High Holidays
at Chabad of Squirrel Hill
Message from the Rabbi
We at Chabad of Squirrel Hill join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5780.
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 synagogues, in our communities — and with your pre-holiday preparation online at www.chabadpgh.com/High
Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!
Rabbi Sruly and Chani Altein
