Yom Kippur is a time for prayer, reflection and learning. Join with your rabbis in three different sessions of study for Yom Kippur afternoon, bridging the time between the conclusion of Yom Kippur morning service and the Afternoon/Yizkor/Neilah service. Please pre-register to receive a private Zoom link. (Zoom link will be emailed to you shortly before the start of the program)
1:00-1:55 pm | Where do We Gain Strength in a time of Crisis: Jewish texts that Inspire Us.
In this first of our three Yom Kippur afternoon study sessions, Rabbi Thomashow will present three images of resilience in a time of crisis from our tradition. Each image is likely to inspire personal reflection in addition to new perspectives on this moment in our lives.
2:00-2:55 pm | God’s Will and Our Will: Abraham Joshua Heschel and Reforming Judaism.
Join Rabbi Danziger. Torah, the foundation of who we are as a people, contains mitzvot – commandments – that obligate us to adherent action. Reform adapts Judaism to the age we live in. Is it truly possible to successfully navigate those obligations – to our commandments and to our context – which may be in conflict?
3:00-3:55 pm | Civil Discourse: The Values Taught by our Sacred Texts in these Divisive Times.
Rabbi Kamrass will guide us through several of our texts that illuminate the issues and strategies for our own reflection and practice during these divisive times. Learn from those who came before us how best to navigate divisive times and difficult discourse, and the values that ground us in Civil discourse and mutual respect.
