Yom Kippur

YK PicYom Kippur is the moment in Jewish time when we dedicate our mind, body, and soul to reconciliation with God, our fellow human beings, and ourselves. We are commanded to turn to those whom we have wronged first, acknowledging our sins and the pain we might have caused.  At the same time, we must be willing to forgive and to let go of certain offenses and the feelings of resentment they provoked in us. On this journey we are both seekers and givers of pardon.

This year (5779 or 2018), Yom Kippur begins on the evening of September 19. Join us for Kol Nidrei on the evening of September 19 and for worship services and study throughout the day on September 20.
