IMPORTANT:  Chabad will be having all services for Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, including Hakafot on both nights and Simchat Torah day. Attendance will be limited and monitored to stay within New York State COVID-19 regulations, and social distancing and mask wearing will be maintained at all times. If necessary, Hakafot will be divided into three separate areas, uptairs, downstairs and in the yard, in order to ensure maximum capacity requirements.
