at Chabad of Windsor Terrace
  Message from the Rabbi
Chabad of Windsor Terrace is proudly servicing our community since 2008. Our mandate is to enhance the quality of Jewish life for the Windsor Terrace neighborhood residents, regardless of affiliation, Jewish background or level of observance.
The steady growth of our community has created a great opportunity for Jews from all types of backgrounds to forge new friendships and come together in deep meaning and happiness.
Due to Covid-19 this year's high holiday services will be different than usual. Nevertheless, with the incorporation of our spacious outdoor facilities for services, we are committed to provide for our communities spiritual and physical needs.  
I invite you to join us this year for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Your health and safety is of utmost importance. All of our services will adhere to the latest CDC guidelines and local health department covid regulations. Let us welcome in the new year 5781 as one community, one people, one family!
Shanah Tovah,
Rabbi Moshe Hecht

In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, the entire community joins together in a proud procession for the observance of \"Tashlich\". Representing the themes of renewal and rejuvenation, this tradition also has a way of demonstrating a spirit of communal solidarity as young and old march and sing together while en route to perform a fascinating mitzvah.
Tashlich will takes place after Mincha on Sunday, September 20, 2020
Increase your generosity of Tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. \"Repentance, Prayer and Charity take away the severity of the decree\".
