With less than a week before the onset of the Jewish New Year, the question of where to attend services is high on the list for many Jewish families and singles. Recognizing the often high price tag attached to the experience, Chabad of Alameda is offering its friendly and welcoming services for free for individuals of all ages in the Alameda Jewish community.
This is an important time of the year for Alameda’s Jewish community. Temple Israel marks this Saturday with three events. They have a Torah study and “Art for All!” at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 16. Call 522-9355 to confirm the time for the Torah study.
Then, at 8:30 p.m., in anticipation of Rosh Hashanah, there will be a reading of the penitential poems and prayer, the Selichot, followed by nosh and conversation.
