Learning Sessions, 2-3 p.m. In the coming year, the Temple Shalom community will explore a synagogue-wide learning theme of Sacred Space, Sacred Time and Sacred Relationships. Begin your study of these foundational Jewish ideas on Yom Kippur. There are three sessions to choose from:
Mindful Meditation: This session includes a short teaching about the awareness of “sacred” in Jewish thought and a guided meditation to help you discover how you might invite this value into your life in the coming year. No meditation experience necessary. Just bring an open mind and a willing heart. Led by Temple Shalom congregants Karen Kramer and Renee Brant.

Traditional Learning: This “traditional” Torah study session will examine one aspect of the Jewish understanding of sacred space. All materials will be provided with thoughtful English translations, and participants will learn together in a guided discussion. No previous experience with Torah study needed. Led by Temple Shalom congregant Paul Centolella.

Interactive Exploration: This hands-on learning experience will explore the importance and diversity of sacred relationships in Jewish teaching. Participants will consider these ideas using ancient and contemporary sources with an eye towards how these ideas can influence our emotional, intellectual and spiritual selves. Bring a willingness to be in conversation with yourself and others. Led by Temple Shalom congregants Barbara and Michael Hecht.

Afternoon Service with Yizkor & Neilah

Wednesday, October 9, 3:15 - 6:30 p.m. followed by a light community break fast.

Yizkor Book of Memory
The Yizkor (memorial) service on Yom Kippur afternoon provides the opportunity to remember those who have passed away. It is traditional to remember and honor the souls of the departed by contributing to tzedakah (charity). If you would like to honor the memory of a loved one by having their name recorded in this year's Book of Memory, which will be shared at our Yizkor service, please complete the form online or contact the Temple Shalom office. The deadline for submissions is Sept. 27.
