Yom Kippur

Clergy face the ark on the bima during Yom Kippur in the Sanctuary

Beginning with the Kol Nidrei and its soul-stirring prayers, the Day of Atonement offers you many options for community prayer and personal reflection.

As with Rosh HaShanah, you’ll find Intergenerational, young professional, preschool, and family services.

Many people in our community find meaning in spending much — if not all — of Yom Kippur day with us at Temple. Our dynamic schedule makes the soul feel good. You can spend your late morning and early afternoon discovering something new about Judaism, sitting for meditation, learning about a pressing social justice issue, and more.

The afternoon also brings a poetry and music hour, Afternoon, Yizkor, and N’ilah services, and an opportunity to break the fast at Temple with your community.
