The afternoon Mincha service at 5:20pm will feature creative study and discussion, followed by a special service of remembrance.

It is traditional to dress entirely in white during Yom Kippur and to refrain from wearing leather, especially leather shoes. We invite you to join us in honoring one or both of these traditions.
