Yom Kippur 5772-2011

Yom Kippur – The Day of Atonement is quickly approaching. This Friday night we will be gathering in the synagogue to recite the famous and powerful Kol Nidre, known as the opening prayer of this important day. During the morning service, at Yizkor, there will be a chance for congregants to recite a special prayer for any close relatives who have passed. The day will conclude with the Neila service followed by a community break-fast meal. The schedule is posted below.

Many individuals, even those who do not do so the rest of the year, light the customary two candles at the beginning of the holiday. Two tea-lights are sufficient. Usually the woman of the household lights the candles but a man may light instead. Translation and transliteration can be found below. If you do not have any candles or need any additional assistance, let us know.

Yom Kippur is also known as a day of fasting – for those who observe this aspect of Yom Kippur, we avoid food and drink on this day unless medically necessary. The elderly, individuals on important medications, and the ill should make sure to consult a physician before fasting. Pregnant or nursing women should consult their physician and rabbi for proper Yom Kippur eating. Let us know if you have any questions.

We hope that all of us have a wonderful new year filled with health, laughter, and peace.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!

2011 High Holidays 5772

 

The Jewish New Year is less than a week away! Rosh HaShannah begins Wednesday evening, September 28th, and ends Friday night, September 30th. Yom Kippur begins Friday evening, October 7th, and ends Saturday night, October 8th.

 

This year, we will be striving to assemble together as a community and celebrate the High Holidays in a manner that is respectful and welcoming to congregants of all levels and types of observance. The services will be conducted in Hebrew and will include selected portions to be read in English. As an inclusive service, we hope to fulfil the requirement of having at least ten men and ten women to complete a quorum. Our inclusive service will provide opportunity for both men and women interested in actively participating in readings, open/close the ark, and aliyahs (call up to the Torah).

 

Below is our schedule for the High Holidays. We hope to begin all services on time with a quorum. Please note that morning service times are approximates based on previous years. The morning service times may also change depending on if we have a quorum. An email will be sent right before the holiday and may reflect any last-minute changes to the schedule.
