Happy New Year!
Join us for the High Holidays at Chabad of Maine

Rabbi's Message
We at Chabad of Maine  join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5781.

Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, and recommit to G‑d on Yom Kippur.

Join us this year to celebrate together outside of our synagogue, at 11 Pomeroy Street in Portland.

Tashlich Service
In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, the entire community joins together in a proud processional 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. Email [email protected] for the Tashlich service time.

Holiday Appeal
Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. "Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree".
