Kol Nidre/Evening Yom Kippur @ 1200 Weymouth Rd., Wynnewood - Julie/Erik Lederman
Oct 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Yom Kippur is one of the exceptional gifts Judaism has given to the world.  It is a day filled with light.  It is intended to be something so different from the ultra-solemn holiday we were taught as youth.  This evening service will see us consider, more as adults than we generally do, what this world is about, and how we can make decisions, to see and feel light – when we often choose, instead, old unhealthy patterns.

Yom Kippur Morning – Outside! @ 3229 Papermill Rd., Huntingdon Valley PA - Melissa, Glen and Annie Nathan's Backyard
Oct 12 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Yom Kippur – our most outstanding day of retreat from nearly 3,000 years ago.  Our plan is to be outside in the Nathan’s backyard, among the trees, under the cool, blue skies.  Will be wonderful to be together for our final gathering during our 10 days of awe.  This is our day of transformation.  What would you like to let go?
