20s and 30s Yom Kippur Service
Wednesday, September 23, 2015
with Rabbi Helfman, Mark Weinstock and Mira Lyon
“Repentance at the Edge of Humanity”
presented by Ely Rosenblum, Phd Candidate, University of Cambridge.
Our 20s and 30s community comes together to pray and reflect this Yom Kippur. The interactive study presented by Ely Rosenblum will take us from our seats in shul to the edge of the human experience, testing one of the hardest attributes – the ability to forgive.
Come for the service, come to see long-lost friends and make a few new ones. Whatever brings you to HBT these HHDs, come join us as our community discusses the limits of repentance and forgiveness on this Yom Kippur, this Day of Atonement.
