Yom Kippur Schedule
When we arrive at Yom Kippur, the “Day of Atonement,” 10 days after Rosh Hashanah, each of us is encouraged to ask for forgiveness from those whom we have affected so that we may do the real work of t’shuvah (repentance), figuring out how we are going to incline towards deep change with ourselves, with our loved ones, and with our community.

STUDY: The Jewish Path to Flourishing in the New Year with Rabbi Knight and Rabbi Nichols at Archer Chapel
Maimonides wrote in the Guide for the Perplexed that the whole of the Torah aims at the wellness of the soul and body. Nachmanides held that every Jewish responsibility and practice has a benefit intended to help our growth of mind, body, and spirit. Jewish wisdom and spiritual practices carry with them a promise to make our lives more fulfilling. Join Rabbi Knight and Rabbi Nichols as we explore the wisdom of Judaism as a deeply nourishing source for our personal development and as an authentic path to flourishing and thriving in the year ahead.
