OTHER HIGH HOLY DAY SERVICES AND EXPERIENCES:
MEDITATIVE MARTYROLOGY: One of the most painful of all Jewish prayers is "Eleh Ezkereh,” which translates to “These We Remember." It is often referred to as The Martyrology, and it is a passage we read on Yom Kippur afternoon. It describes in graphic detail the torture and death of ten great Rabbis by the Roman Empire, two thousand years ago.
This year we are having our own special Meditative Martyrology Service on Yom Kippur, Wednesday, October 12 at 2:00 PM. The theme of this service is “How do we continue to have faith in Adonai in the midst of evil and injustice?” We will experience that spark of spiritual meaning as we listen to readings and participate in a 10 minute reflection. More information HERE.
SUKKOT AND SIMHAT TORAH INFORMATION
Lulav Shake and Sukkot Shelanu: Everyone is invited on Sunday, October 16 for our annual Lulav Shake and Sukkah Marketplace! This year, we are combining forces with the Israeli School of Lexington to bring you even more fun and excitement. There will be various stations with learning and projects, as well as the Family Ed table where you can learn about the different parts of a lulav and how to tie it together. Don’t forget to make a Sukkah decoration and enjoy a Lulav Milk Shake! If you have pre-ordered a lulav set for yourself, pick up for this will be in the Social Hall between 10:00 and 12:30 PM.
With the ongoing security concerns in Israel and throughout the world, we will continue to be vigilant about security this year, so please bring your name tags as we will absolutely be checking them at the door. Please understand that the members who will be checking tickets have volunteered their time - time away from family and friends. Some of our newer member volunteers may not recognize our long-time members. In the spirit of the High Holy Days, please be patient and understanding.
