Apple Dipped in Honey.jpgChabad brings the joy of the Jewish holidays to life for Jews from all backgrounds and walks of life. With numerous programmes ranging from High Holiday youth services, public Chanukah menorah lightings and children's workshops and Passover Model Matzah Bakeries, there is always something going on which you can enjoy.

Check your local Chabad centre for details or contact Tzivos Hashem who can bring programmes to your School, Cheder, or community.

Before every holiday, very informative brochures are produced describing the background of the holiday, with inspirational articles, and easy-to-follow guides, to help you through the holiday customs step-by-step.
