Yom Kippur: A Day of Silence and Reflection
with Jon Aaron, Elaine Retholtz, and Sandra Weinberg
Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 | 10am-6:30pm, followed by a break-fast
Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement, a day when, as a community, Jews are asked to reflect on their actions of the past year and to ask for atonement for any actions that were unskillful. In support of this day, NYI hosts a day of silence and reflection.
There will be meditations focused on the idea of right action, the difference between guilt and remorse, the laws of karma, forgiveness, and lovingkindness. There will also be an opportunity for mindful discussion on the Buddhist perspective on atonement. All are welcome to join us in this exploration. The day will end with a symbolic break-fast.
Doors open at 9:30am. Pre-registration is required.
This daylong retreat is a dana (donation) based event. If you do not handle money that day for religious reasons, you can give donations before the event or until September 21, 2018 until 12 noon.
