Pre Yom Kippur Reflection

Tuesday, 29 September, 2020 - 3:04 pm

 Gmar Chatima Tova.pngAs we approach the holiest day of the Jewish Calendar, our hearts and minds are filled with thoughts and emotions about the times in which we live. This is a different kind of Yom Kippur than what most of us have ever experienced, as the pandemic has changed the course of our lives dramatically and brought with it an abundance of challenges of every kind, including financial, health, emotional and more. In some places right now including Israel, it is once again out of control and wreaking havoc on society and Yom Kippur will be done under complete lockdown.

Whether we will praying at home and observing Yom Kippur in our living room, or joining in an in person socially distanced outdoor service, our hearts and minds will be filled with the same hopes and prayers, for an end to the pandemic, for the ability to embrace our loved ones without fear of sharing a virus, for all those who are sick to recover, and for all those who are struggling financially to once again be able to get back on their feet. 

If you stay home you may feel you are alone, but in truth you are certainly together with the entire Jewish community all around the globe, and G-d too, will join you in your living room and tune in to your prayers and thoughts that are going through your mind. This year, your living room is your holy of holies and the place where your soul will pour itself out and connect with G-d.

May the depth and power of the holy day of Yom Kippur along with the prayers and reflections of millions of our brethren all around the world, usher in all the blessings of healing, unity and more that the world so very needs.

For those who would like to join us on the pre Yom Kippur Zoom & Yizkor join us at 4pm. The Zoom info for this service is here. For those who are planning on joining us in person for the socially distant outdoor services in the tent or on the lawn please see the schedule below and RSVP if you haven't yet done so.

Gmar Chatima Tova and an easy fast and a meaningful Yom Kippur to all.
