Chabad Updates
Rosh Hashanah is not just the first day of the year, but indeed it is the “Head” – “Rosh” in Hebrew – of the year. Much like the head controls the body and its functions, Rosh Hashanah is the day that sets the tone for the coming year.

Join us in meaningful prayer and festive meals as we celebrate this special day.

What is a Lulav and Etrog?

One of the special Sukkot mitzvot is the mitzvah of the "Four Kinds" - the lulav, etrog, myrtle and willow. This is a mitzvah like any other mitzvah of the Torah, but it is a very significant one and symbolic of unity and harmony. When the blessings are recited over them, it is customary to wave them to all the four winds and also upward and downward, signifying that G-d is everywhere.
