  • 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm: 1A) Mindful Movement or 1B) The Book of Jonah
    • Mindful Movement with Holly Glick,  Zoom
      • Expand and deepen your spiritual experience of this sacred holiday through a gentle movement practice. Mindful Movement is offered as a pathway to encounter and embody the holiness of Yom Kippur. Through careful attention to the breath and body, return (t’shuvah) to your truest and best self. All are welcome.
    • The Book of Jonah, Beit Midrash and Zoom
      • Our Yom Kippur afternoon Haftarah is the Book of Jonah. He may be the most successful Prophet in our Bible, and yet he is most well known for being swallowed by a giant fish. Join our clergy as we delve deeper into the text to learn about Jonah and the lessons for today.
  • 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm: 2A) Mussar or 2B) Healing Service or 2C) Yeladim Service
    • Mussar with Caryl Shaw on Zoom
      • Yom Kippur is a time for reflection and renewed commitment to change for the better. The study and practice of Mussar can help you determine where you will focus your efforts and provide a roadmap for your journey. People of all experience levels are welcome.
    • Healing Service, Beit Midrash only
      • Gather for a service of reflective prayer, poetry, comfort, and care in community, for all of us in need of healing—for ourselves and those we love. Please note: this service will be offered only in person due to its sensitive nature.
    • Yom Kippur Yeladim Service, Camp Chickami (rain location: Sanctuary) and Livestream
      • It’s time for Yom Kippur Yeladim, a service designed for our youngest (and most adorable) members- kids 0-5- with songs, prayers, dancing and a story. This service is open to members and those who are not yet members of Temple Shir Tikva by registration request using the main registration form.
  • 3:30 pm – 4:20 pm: 3A) Meditation or 3B) Rabbis in Conversation
    • Meditation with Michelle Goldhaber, Zoom
