With candles illuminating our paths, we pose the eternal questions of our existence. Through exploration, forgiveness, and apology, we complete our spiritual preparation for the High Holy Days.

7 p.m.: Social gathering (onsite in the TI courtyard)

Gather with the Temple Israel of Boston community for food, drink, and good conversation as we prepare to welcome in the High Holy Day season together.

7:30 p.m.: Spiritual practice lab (onsite; in mixed presence, onsite and online)

We enter into S’lichot by choosing a spiritual practice that seeks to open our hearts to the profound message of our High Holy Days. Spiritual modalities will include movement (onsite), art making (onsite), and text study (online in mixed presence).

9 p.m.: Candle-lit service (onsite and online)

We prepare ourselves and our Torah for our season of holiness. With candles, music, and repentant meditation, we dress our Torah in white and ready ourselves for the holy days ahead.
