Yom Kippur Experience

The Kids Experience – Yom Kippur

After an EPIC two days of Rosh Hashanah, Sababa will once again be open through the morning of Yom Kippur for the kids to be entertained. There will be games and activities, and also *NEW* for Yom Kippur, will be the Kids Shul – split for younger age and bigger kids, where the kids will run the show, and the kids will be excited about celebrating the Jewish festivals!

Family experience will be from 11am – 11:45am

Included will be snacks and lunch for all kids under Bar/Bat Mitzvah, at Sababa, so you don’t have to worry about your children being hungry!

Uplifting Service – Yom Kippur

An easy to follow, uplifting and meaningful service which welcomes everyone from all backgrounds and affiliations. Join on Tuesday evening for Kol Nidrei, through the day on Wednesday, or chose a part of the service that you can be at. 

The special Yizkor service will be at approx 11am, which we will recite and pray for all the names that have been submitted in the Yizkor booklet. If you haven’t had the chance to submit a name, and would like a loved one mentioned, please be in touch.

From Your Friends

I have never felt truly uplifted on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur. Being at the Jewish Life Centre made my High Holidays so meaningful and I had inspiration to get me through the difficult year. I so look forward to another service with Chabad, and I cannot wait for the inspiration once again.

Borehamwood Resident

My family had such a beautiful Rosh Hashanah. We join the family power hour service, and each one of us, for the kids to us parents thoroughly enjoyed it and gained so much. You can see all the detail and thought that went in to make it fun, interactive and educational, and we are so excited for another Rosh Hashanah to join again!

High Holiday Appeal

Over Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur there are three elements that can inscribe us for a sweet, healthy and beautiful year ahead. 

Teshuvah – Forgiveness:

This is between you and others, anyone you may have wronged or have bad feelings towards, take the opportunity today to ask for forgiveness and bring peace and harmony between you and our fellow human beings.


Tefillah – Prayer: 

This is between you and G-d. Open your heart and soul, and connect, and speak to G-d. He is waiting to hear from you, and always ready to listen to your prayers!


Tzedakah – Charity:

This is between you and your community. Giving to others brings blessings to you. No amount is too small, the essence is to give.  It is a special time to give charity before the High Holidays. If you have not had the opportunity to give to a charity, please consider giving to the Jewish Life Centre. You can give through the link below.
