Yom Kippur Services – Live streamed

Sunday, September 27th – Yom Kippur

Kol Nidre 5:45pm

A beautiful, contemplative service which will help us make the transition into the holiness and sanctity of Yom Kippur. We will leave the world behind and move into this sacred time, hear the haunting melody of Kol Nidrei and begin our process of reflection and repentance.

Monday, September 28th – Yom Kippur

Morning Service 10:00am

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.

Afternoon service 1:00pm

The afternoon service begins with the Torah reading and the story of Jonah, a tale which has captured the imagination of the generations. Following the prayers of forgiveness, we go on a journey through Jewish history using mostly English readings, from the creation, through to the redemption from Egypt, the days of the Temple and martyrs of our people, the Holocaust and tragedies, concluding with the return to the land of Israel and our Jewish world today.

Yizkor 4:30pm
The beautiful choral service whose music lifts us and creates a space for us to remember those we love who have gone from life. We feel their treasured presence as we pray the ancient words expressing our loss and thankfulness for the blessing of their lives. We will read the names of the people in our congregation who have died in the past year, since last Yom Kippur.

Ne’ilah 5:30pm
The concluding prayers of the Yom Kippur day are filled with hope, our final pleas and joy as we move back towards the world feeling spiritually cleansed and refreshed. The slate has been wiped clean and we begin again. The sun is setting, the day is ending and we rejoice as we step through the closing gates to the final sounding of the shofar.

Communal Havdallah – 6:34pm
