Atlanta - Chabad is reaching out in a bIg, big way to the thousands of Jews living in Metro-Atlanta. Fewer than 50% of the Jewish community is affiliated with any synagogue, so Chabad is inviting all Jews to attend High Holiday services at the 14 locations in Georgia with a 60-foot billboard off of I-85.
“The billboard serves several purposes” says Rabbi Yossi New, Director of Chabad of Georgia. “First, it creates awareness that the holidays are approaching. Second, it gives
Jewish people the opportunity to take pride in their religion. And third, it offers an open-door invitation to any Jewish person who wishes to participate in High Holiday services and hear the shofar blown ‘without any strings attached.’”
This is not the first billboard Chabad of Georgia has put up. The organization sponsored a Chanukah billboard in December, wishing everyone a happy Chanukah.
Rabbi Isser New, Chabad of Georgia Associate Director says, “We hope to do these kinds of billboards more often in the future. We love to draw people’s attention in such an exciting way.”
You can view the High Holidays billboard from I-85, heading north from downtown toward the Monroe Drive exit.
