Morning Talk, immediately following the Shabbat Morning Service
At Temple + On Zoom (please use the same Zoom link from the Shabbat Morning Service. For access, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Topic: How Jews Discovered Sin: and What We Did With It
Yom Kippur has not always been so sin-centered. Rabbinic Judaism actually played down the ubiquity of human sinfulness. We’ll look at the surprising history of Avinu Malkenu and Kol Nidre, mirrors to Jewish self-esteem (or lack thereof), as Jews struggled with the idea of sin and what to do with it.
Join us for Kiddush after the morning talk, catered by Micah Cooks.
