Yom Kippur Adult Learning & Discussion @ Temple B'nai Israel

12:15PM - 2:45PM  

The time between morning and afternoon services offers a quiet, contemplative sacred space for congregants.  We will gather in Goldman Hall to hear several members of the congregation share ethical dilemmas in their profession as well as short stories of spiritual teshuvah, growth and forgiveness.  As we listen with an open mind and heart, we will be practicing the art of “sacred listening”.  Thank you to Dan Yancey, Stephanie Brill, Harold Ginzburg, Ann Louis Olson and Ari Nachatilo for sharing their stories on Yom Kippur afternoon.

The awe-inspiring film, Earthrise, tells the story of the first image captured of the earth from space by Apollo 8 astronauts.  Told solely through their words, the film recounts their descriptions of the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth set against the blackness of space. This beautiful short film provides a powerful perspective of the planet that we all share and the "most influential environmental photograph ever taken".

The Adult Education committee plans Yom Kippur afternoon programs to nourish our inner thoughts, our connections with each other, and our role as a Kehilla Kadosha – a sacred community.
