Message from the Rabbi
We join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5784.
This year the first day of Rosh Hashanah falls on Shabbat. This means that Shofar will only be done on the Second day of Rosh Hashanah. This also pushes our famous Tashlich service, a short service taking place at Himawari Hotel lobby, to the second day.

We wish you and yours ample blessings in finances, family, health, happiness, life of meaning and a Shana Tovah U'metukah — a year overflowing with goodness and sweetness.
Rabbi Bentzion & Mashie Butman

about our shul & services

Our services are open to all Jews, regardless of background or affiliation. Our style is friendly and welcoming. We seek to make all our attendees as comfortable as possible. The services are traditional, conducted with the beginner in mind. No experience needed.

Many of our people don't understand or read Hebrew. Therefore, our Machzor (the holiday prayer book) has a translation for the entire prayer so you can follow along (with the same page number) throughout the prayer.

Additionally, some of the prayers are read in English and a running commentary by the Rabbi accompanies the entire service, including stories, inspirational thoughts, insights to the meaning of the prayers and more. The service includes much festive as well as meditative singing. We make efforts to pick the well known melodies.


There is no charge or membership fee to attend the services. We would be thankful if you can sponsor a prayer book for $30 each. You can do so here or just stop by the Jewish Center.


If you want to be more prepared and know what to expect, we will be more than happy to privately introduce you to the prayer book (the Machzor) at your convenience!

If sitting in Synagogue for 3 hours is not an option for you, try the Tashlich service which is a 15 minutes service done outdoors at riverside. More details at the Tashlich section below.

We are trying to match the needs of each and every individual. Please contact us with any of your concerns.

In the late afternoon of the 1st day of Rosh Hashanah, the entire community joins together in a proud processional for the observance of "Tashlich". A short 15 minutes service done outside.
We will blow Shofar again for those who didn't hear in the morning.
Unlike other years, as this is done on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah, we will not proceed to Chavad for a festive dinner. Light refreshments will be served at the actual event.
Sunday, September 17, 5:30 pm at Himawari Hotel's lobby.
Surprising to many, Chabad Cambodia is solely responsible for its budget. We are dependent on the generosity of those who benefit from our activities. We don't charge any membership fee nor admission fee for most of our events.
As it is customary to increase your generosity of Tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season we invite you to set up a meeting in which we can present our budget to you and see how we can take care of it.
