Yom Kippur ("Day of Atonement") is the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. In three separate passages, the Torah states, "the tenth day of the seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a sacred occasion for you: You shall practice self-denial."(Leviticus 23:27). We fulfill this commandment by fasting, which also enables us to put aside our physical desires and to concentrate on our spiritual needs through prayer, repentance and self-improvement. It is customary in the days before Yom Kippur to seek out friends and family whom we have wronged and ask for their forgiveness.

The Shabbat Shuvah ("The Shabbat of Return") Service, occured on Saturday, September 23, at 10am. Shabbat Shuvah falls between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and is considered to be a time of reflection leading up to the Day of Atonement.

Cantor Ellen Dreskin led our 5778 Yom Kippur Services. A brief afternoon service was targeted toward young children.

Yom Kippur concluded with a Yizkor ("remembrance") Memorial Service, where the names of membsrs' immediate family were be read aloud. Email our office if you would like to review or edit your family's Yizkor list.
