Wednesday, September 13 | 7:15-9:15 PM | 88th Street Frankel Hall
Presented by the Jewish Home Project.
The season of the High Holy Days is marked by personal introspection, powerful (and plentiful!) prayer, and lots of time with relatives, friends, and community. Not surprisingly, it is also a season during which people can experience tension -- emotional, social and spiritual. Like all holidays with their particular sounds, rituals and tastes, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur can invite a resurfacing of themes that lie at the heart of myriad relationships. For couples and families who may have more than one tradition or culture in their home, this season may prove especially intense for all involved. This time of year invites deeper and more honest conversation about life, faith and culture, conversation that is core to the building and sustaining of healthy, balanced and respectful bonds within families and community. To prepare for a meaningful and transformative experience of the Yamim Noraim, join us for an evening devoted to a discussion of the questions, concerns and possibilities that the High Holy Days raise for multi-faith/multi-heritage couples and families.
Led by Rabbi Adina Lewittes with Rabbi Michael Boino, BJ’s Coordinator of Pastoral Care.
