Saturday, September 12 8:00pm

Join us for a candlelit evening of meditation and reflection as we enter the Days of Awe, the High Holy Day season. Traditionally, this is a contemplative havdalah service where we change the covers of the Torah to the High Holy Day white, hear the shofar and we begin the process of atonement for the season. Participants will be encouraged to engage in the service from a quiet space, in comfortable clothes and with candles. Even though we are not physically in the same place, this is one way to renew and connect to the holiday season together.  Please register for Zoom https://templesholom.shulcloud.com/form/selichot-2020.html to receive the secure link.

At any point between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the Jewish people are invited to participate in the ceremony of Tashlich. Traditionally, this involves Jewish folks gathering around a body of water and symbolically casting their sins away. This is usually done with breadcrumbs and hearkens to the Micah 7:18 text “You shall cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.” There are many places you can do this (Pioneer Park, Swaim Park, Lake Isabella, the little Miami river…) and many ways to do this (as a prayer service, as a writing exercise, with friends or on your own). If you would like guidelines on a basic meditation service for this practice, you can download it HERE or email Julie HERE for a copy.

In this first phase, we are looking for 10 people to help assemble meal kits for approximately 2 hours on Sunday, September 20th at 2:00 pm at Temple Sholom.   These kits will be picked up over the course of the following week, during the Days of Awe, by more volunteers who will assemble lunches and deliver them to shelters around Cincinnati. 

Meal kits will be assembled outdoors (weather permitting) in the parking lot of the synagogue. Chairs will be made available to those in need.   Sign up here:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0F44A8A628A6F85-assembling
