Yom Kippur Afternoon Study Sessions
October 5, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Session 1: Bicycle riding on Yom Kippur? Join Rabbi Aaron Meyer and Co-Founder and CEO of Outside Angle, Sarah Silverman, for an interactive discussion on the many ways Jews and Judaism seem to be evolving faster than synagogues and rabbis. Together we will explore areas of disconnect between Jews and the organizations serving the Jewish community, examine the points of friction that arise during efforts to adapt, and together dream about a brighter future. This session will be held in the Beit HaT’filah 15 minutes after the conclusion of Yom Kippur morning services.
Session 2 (2:00pm) In partial response to the challenging reports of misconduct in the Union for Reform Judaism’s main organizations, President Michelle Markowitz convened a broad-based Task Force of Board Members and congregants to make explicit the values of our sacred community. Their work product, a Code of Conduct for staff, members, and all who engage with Temple, strives to articulate the values of safety and inclusivity that make Temple a kehlia kedosha. Join Michelle, co-chair Rob Edelson, and members of the Task Force to better understand their work and its impact on Temple
