WHAT TO EXPECT: Yom Kippur is our holiest day of the year, a time in which we collectively and individually note where we've gone off course. It is the day in which the Book of Life is sealed for the coming year, and we begin the year ahead with a clean slate. At the conclusion of Ne'ilah, our community is invited to gather together to break the fast on the Civic Center's Redwood Terrace. All are welcome! Services will be both in-person and virtual, unless otherwise indicated.

    Yom Kippur Discussion with Rabbi Doug Kahn and Rabbi Stacy

    Wednesday, Oct 5th 3:00p to 4:00p
    What is happening to the wall between church and state in our country? And should we care? Recently the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, ruled that public school officials can pray at school, and required state funding of tuition for private religious schools if other private schools receive funding. Church/state separation has not received a lot of attention in the Jewish community in recent years. It’s time to discuss. This conversation will take place on the afternoon of Yom Kippur at the Marin Veterans' Memorial Auditorium + Virtual.

IMPORTANT RITUALS:

Yizkor: Yizkor (“Remember”) carves out moments in time for us to remember those who we have lost. Two of these Yizkor services occur during the High Holy Days (one on Yom Kippur, and one on Shemini Atzeret), at which time we will collectively lift up the memories of loved ones who have died.

Ne'ilah: Ne'ilah is the concluding service of Yom Kippur, when the final prayers are recited prior to the break fast. 

*For Families: If you are unable to join us for the Yom Kippur afternoon services, please join us at Nei'lah so your children can blow the shofar and participate in a beautiful havdalah ritual with music, candles and spices, prior to breaking the fast as a community.
