Shofar in the Park
September 20 @ 4:15 pm - 6:00 pm
As Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year approaches on the eve of September 18, most people who ordinarily attend synagogue for the Jewish High Holidays will not be able to be there in person this year due Covid-19 and are looking for alternative ways to celebrate and hear the Shofar.
In order to help people mark the holiday safely, yet in person with the community, Chabad of NE Portland is offering a safe, family-friendly, Shofar in the Park, on Sunday, September 20 at Grant and Laurelhurst Parks.
The brief ceremony, which will run for about 20 minutes, will be held multiple times 4:15-6 pm, to ensure smaller groups and proper social distancing measures. Facemasks will be available as well.
The event is free and open to the public. Men, women and children are invited. For times, locations and to pre-register, go to jewishnortheast.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/4844665/jewish/Shofar-in-the-Park.htm.
