Jewish communities in Newport Beach are preparing to celebrate the High Holy Days next week.
Temple Isaiah, which shares facilities with Harbor Christian Church at 2401 Irvine Ave., invites anyone interested to attend Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services, beginning the eve of Rosh Hashana, at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Rosh Hashana services will also be held at the temple Sept. 5 and 6, followed by Yom Kippur services Sept. 13 and 14. All will apply a modern approach to traditional prayer, according to a news release.
Tickets are on sale for $125 per person, $250 per couple and $300 per family at http://www.templeisaiahoc.com. Students and military personnel can attend for free.
The Chabad Jewish Center is hosting free Jewish new year services at the Hyatt Regency, at 1107 Jamboree Road. The program is mostly for unaffiliated Jewish families in Orange County, according to a news release.
Beginning with an evening service at 7 p.m. Wednesday, the services will blend traditional customs with contemporary messages, according to the release.
Like Temple Isaiah, Rosh Hashana services will also be held Sept. 5 and 6, and Yom Kippur services will be held Sept. 13 and 14.
