Yom Kippur Afternoon Sessions
Please join our Zoom call at the start time of the Yom Kippur Learning Session you would like to attend. Here is the schedule:

1:30 – 2:15– Israel on our Minds with Rabbi Eric Yoffie
Join us for an update on the current situation in Israel. Together we will discuss the current political climate within in Israel and with its neighbors and also the Israeli-American relationship.

2:15 – 2:30 – Kedoshim Tiyhu- You Shall be Holy with Cantor Martha Novick
We will hear the Torah reading for Yom Kippur Afternoon and have the opportunity for a discussion on what it means to be holy.

2:30 – 3:00 – Why (we don’t) Forgive with Rabbi Ellen Lewis
Religion and psychology remind us that forgiveness is good for us.  What stops us from being able to forgive? 

3:00 – 3:30 – Public Confessional Prayers: Traditional Roots and Modern Twists at Yom Kippur with Rabbi Mary Zamore
Together we will explore the Ashamnu and Al Chet, the public confessional prayers, of the High Holyday liturgy, learning their origins and modern twists on this central section of our liturgy. See how the #metoo and Black Lives Matter movements, as well as positive behavioral theory, have found voice in these ancient prayers.

3:30 – 4:00 – Perspectives of Jews of Color in our Community with Becky Jaye
Rabbinic Intern Becky Jaye will moderate a panel conversation of Temple Emanu El Members as they share their insights and stories about the intersections of Judaism, diversity, inclusion and race.

4:00 – 4:30 – Jonah the Hypocrite with Samara Schwartz, YLE Director
When Jonah can choose to show mercy or to punish, he makes very different choices for himself than he does for others. Where does God stand when God makes that choice, and where should we? Join us as we listen to the Haftarah for Yom Kippur afternoon and explore the text.
