AFTERNOON STUDY SESSION & TORAH READING:
Kedoshim – Holiness and A Vision For Healing Our World

The early liturgists of Reform Judaism chose Leviticus 19 as the scriptural center of Yom Kippur afternoon. At the heart of the holiest day of the Jewish year, the text of Kedoshim’s Holiness Code demands that we bring compassion and justice in our world. Social justice is not just a 21st century concept; 2500 years ago our ancestors taught that while ritual life matters, holiness requires economic justice, immigrant justice, environmental justice, and more. Join Rabbi Schindler to hear ancient sages’ voices on modern issues.

AFTERNOON STUDY SESSION & HAFTARAH READING:
The Book of Jonah and Life Interrupted - An Invitation
to Living a Life of Purpose

They shock us; they shake us; they compel us to change. We cannot escape life’s interruptions - and there has been no larger disruption than the pandemic. What happens when the dynamics in our world interrupt our lives and our plans? The prophet Jonah struggled with God’s intrusions and the responsibility that God gave him. How do we, like Jonah, struggle with the obligation that comes with big and small decisions? Dive into the study of Jonah with Rabbi Knight. The traditional Yom Kippur afternoon text will help us discover how an interruption may also be an invitation to living a life of depth, meaning, and purpose.

A NOTE FOR EACH POCKET: ART FOR THE NEW YEAR

Rabbi Simcha Bunim taught, “Keep two pieces of paper in your pocket at all times. On one: ‘I am but dust and ashes,’ and on the other: ‘The world was created for me.’” Explore this text through discussion and artistic creativity with Rabbi Nichols. We will each consider, “What messages do I need in my pockets to guide me in the New Year?” Please have blank paper and either colored pencils or markers with you.

CHARLOTTE COLLEGE CONNECTION:
Closing the Gates on Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur on a college campus always feels different even if we are not in the midst of a global pandemic. Feeling connected to Jewish community takes work. Take time to connect in a new way with our creative Yom Kippur experience with Rabbi Judy, musician Patty Torcellini and artist Betsy Rosen. Enjoy connecting with the familiar music as we reflect on righting the wrongs of our past, on the book of our lives and how we want it to be written, and praying that the New Jewish Year of 5781 will indeed be one of global health.  Whether you grew up in Charlotte, live in Charlotte now, or simply want a touch of the High Holidays in a low commitment way, join us.
