  • Zoom will remain open after services for people to break the fast together in community.
We will be keeping Zoom open after our closing service on Yom Kippur to give you a continued opportunity to connect to community by breaking the fast with others. 

Jewish tradition recognizes a meal as a time for intimacy, fellowship, and significant conversation. Kindness is the basic mood of the Jewish meal. People are fed and nourished, and in this intimate setting people talk with each other about what matters.


We need volunteers who are familiar with Zoom to assist with check-in and other Zoom functions.  You can help by taking a shift or two.  Training will be provided.  Contact Frann at frannshore@gmail.com or Diane at dianetzilka@gmail.com.  Members and non-members are welcome to help out.


Reconstructing Judaism has generously created a pdf version of our Kol Haneshamah High Holy Day prayer book so that everyone can access it from home.  Everyone who registers for our services will receive the pdf version a few days before Yom Kippur. If you would like to purchase the actual book, go to Recon Press.  Discounts are available to Leyv Ha-Ir members.
