2. Vassar Temple Lifelong Learning

Preparing for the Yamim Noraim, with Rabbi Altman

Wednesday, September 14, 7:30 p.m.

Mishkan HaNefesh, the Reform movement’s mahzor, is still new to many of us.  Since we only use it once a year, it may not yet have that familiar feel.  In this Holy Day workshop, we will explore some of the key prayers of the Holy Day liturgy, their meaning and message for our lives today, as well as new interpretations provided in Mishkan HaNefesh.  There will also be an opportunity for personal reflection as we enter into the season of repentance. 

We will meet in person in the East Chapel as well as via zoom (see links in weekly e-newsletter).  Copies of Mishkan HaNefesh will be provided.  If you are attending via zoom, it would be helpful to borrow a copy in advance.  

Please RSVP to to help in planning and indicate if you are attending in person or on zoom.

All members of the community are welcome.
