High Holiday Services at Chabad of Putnam County

Chabad of Putnam County, located in the heart of Carmel, invites you to join us for High Holiday Services. For reservations and location of services visit our website www.PutnamChabad.org or call 845.225.4770.


Chabad of Putnam invites the community to its traditional High Holiday Services, where prayers are warm, the people friendly, and where everyone feels at home. We offer a welcoming service to all, regardless of background or affiliation. Our style is friendly and welcoming. We seek to make all our attendees as comfortable as possible. The services are conducted with the beginner in mind. Many of the prayers are therefore read in English and a running commentary by the rabbi accompanies the entire service, including stories, inspirational thoughts, teachings about the prayers. The service includes much festive as well as meditative singing.

We offer an excellent children's program during parts of the main services. The program is run by Morah Michal, who will explain the meaning of some of the prayers. Stories, songs, refreshments, contests and prizes will be included in this special holiday children's program.


On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Sunday September 16 at 12:45 pm on the shore of Lake Gleneida we will be providing a 30 minute outdoor service that will include Shofar blowing, Tashlich, several selected meaningful prayers, and a brief holiday message delivered by Rabbi Korer.


The High Holidays are right around the corner, and here at Chabad of Putnam that means it’s time for some hands-on holiday learning, with excitement and fun!

On September 10, the Rosh Hashanah Fair will be setting up shop at Chabad of Putnam, filled with special stalls and activities for your children to enjoy. Visit each of our “vendors” to bake your own delicious round challahs, whip up an artisanal pomegranate salsa, design custom Shana Tovah cards, taste-test symbolic holiday treats, and more!

Our fair will also feature a LIVE Shofar Workshop where participants will learn how to make a real shofar. We’ll wrap up the revelry by making magnets that feature our fresh resolutions for the New Year, and each child will bring home their very own Rosh Hashanah snackle box filled with their goodies from the fair!

Join us in getting ready for Rosh Hashanah the Chabad of Putnam way, with joyful Jewish experiences and memories to last a lifetime.
