Yom Kippur Afternoon Discussion: Holiness Every Day
September 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Holiness Every Day: Carrying the Lessons of Yom Kippur Into the Rest of the Year
During the afternoon service of Yom Kippur, after we have been fasting and praying for close to 20 hours, we read from the “Holiness code“ in Leviticus 19. Instead of further expounding on themes of sin and atonement, it gives multiple examples of how to pursue holiness as individuals and in community. What is this text doing in the middle of Yom Kippur, and how can it guide us as we reenter our regular lives after the final shofar blast of Ne’ilah?”
This discussion will be led by Suzanne Griffel, a rabbi in Chicago who will have the good fortune to spend Yom Kippur in Burlington this year.
This gathering will take place in the Yurt.
