Chabad of Rockland prepares for socially distant Rosh Hashana services
Services for the Jewish New Year known as Rosh Hashana will be different this year due to the pandemic, including at the Chabad of Rockland.
The synagogue has spaced chairs 6 feet apart, members are required to wear masks and there's now a plastic barrier between the rabbi and readers.
Rabbi Avremel Kotlarsky says the service is also much smaller.
Restrictions aside, he says many families are still hesitant to return to service due to health concerns.
