Chabad at the Shore is offering Children’s Service for children and their parents this High Holiday season at the Chabad Chai Center.

Included in the Service is a fun Holiday Fair for the children to enjoy. The highlight of the program is when the children will be invited into the main sanctuary to hear the Blowing of the Shofar- this is always a favorite for the children as they are called up to the Bimah to say the blessing together with the Rabbi and experience the thrill of the Shofar sounds.

Yom Kippur Kids Program is Wednesday at 11:15 am 

Location: Chabad Chai Center
(6605 Atlantic Ave. in Ventnor)
