Yom Kippur afternoon service and breaking fast

Saturday, September 30, 2017 • 10 Tishrei 5778

4:30 PM - 7:00 PMWorship Hall of Unitarians

We reconvene for the afternoon Minhah Service, once again featuring a father-and-son chanting of the story of Jonah along with our alternative Torah reading. We reconstruct the traditional Avodah service to consider a member’s presentation of a thoughtful reflection on a challenging issue or concept in our tradition, with the opportunity to respond. The always meaningful Yizkor service follows, which will also feature a personal reflection on loss from an OrH member, along with the honouring of the memories of our dear departed. Finally Neilah beckons us, through song and silence, before the open ark or at our seats, towards the final great blast of the shofar, and the conclusion of our full day with havdallah. We share a communal break-fast meal immediately following.

Youth Programming: Youth will join the community in the Sanctuary to the afternoon then join our educator, Eliyanah Delicate, from 5:15-6:15 in adjacent Fellowship Hall for meaningful and engaging Yom Kippur-related activities. Click here for more information.
