At the same time, Aish’s Rabbi Shmuel Greenwald will lead a learners service at the Aish Firehouse, 457 N. Woods Mill Road in Chesterfield. Immediately after the service at the Firehouse, Shmuel and Chana Greenwald will host a Rosh Hashanah dinner at 8 p.m. The cost for dinneris $25 per adult, $15 per child (ages 5-11); children under 5 are free.
