Cantor George Mordecai and Reverend Sam Zwarenstein

The morning service of Yom Kippur. During this service we connect deeply with the themes of this sacred day. We will join with the ancient melodies and prayers which call on us to examine our lives and consider our dreams and hopes for the year ahead. This service will include one minutes silence at 12 noon when we will stop and remember, along with all the synagogues in Sydney, those we have lost from our lives. 

Rabbi Jeffery Kamins, Rabbi Jacqueline Ninio, Rabbi Kaiserblueth, Aaron Ezekiel, Chloe Corne

Reading from the Torah from the book of Vayikra/Leviticus detailing the service from the Mishkan which is juxtaposed with the Haftarah from Isaiah, which is a call to action for a true and internal repentance. 

Joel Nothman

One of the major services of the day, aside from the Amidah, there is also the Avodah Service (which reenacts the service from Temple times where the High Priest would enter the the innermost sanctum of the Temple, the Holy of Holies) as well as the Ela Ezkera (Martyology) service in which we recall those who gave their lives in service to the Jewish People over the ages.

The afternoon service begins with the Torah reading from Leviticus, commanding us to be a Holy People, followed by the haftarah which is the Book of Jonah. The service then moves to the Amidah which is complete with another rendition of the Slichot and Vidui (confessional) prayers.

Rabbi Kaiserblueth and Cantor Mordecai

The concluding service of Yom Kippur, this is a service unique to the Day of Atonement. It gives us one final chance to utter our prayers as the Gates of Heavens are closing, but still open just enough for our prayers to be reached.
