Chabad of Fairfield is preparing to hold its Rosh Hashana service outdoors this weekend, so it can accommodate more people amid the pandemic.
The congregation set up a tent on the grounds of the Fairfield Museum in preparation for the event to begin at sundown.
There will be a full-length service as well as a shorter one, which will be an hour long. Masks and social distancing will be required.
For those who prefer to observe at home, volunteers made to-go bags filled with a prayer book, a Rosh Hashana guide and traditional treats.
"Everybody has been trying to find purpose and meaning with what we are experiencing," says Rabbi Shlane Ianda. "We are going to give you the tools to make it a personally meaningful Rosh Hashana, wherever you will be."
The congregation will also walk to Jennings Beach to mark the start of the Jewish New Year.
