Outreach services for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur expect 70,000 Israelis

The Tzohar Rabbinical Organization in partnership with Yachad Ohr Torah Stone is hosting services on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and expect to reach nearly 70,000 people throughout Israel.

Through its network of volunteers, 250 shofar blowers will provide their services in cities, moshavim and kibbutzim and an additional 300 people will lead holiday services. Tzohar arranged for the printing of thousands of new holiday prayer books with explanations of the prayer service and customs of the holiday.

On Yom Kippur, a day commemorated by the vast majority of Israelis including those that identify as secular, Tzohar and Yachad Ohr Torah Stone volunteers will lead services in over 350 locations, including schools and community buildings.

This year, for the first time, Tzohar will also make sets of the four species, a lulav and etrog, available to communities for Sukkot.
