OUR JOURNEY THROUGH YOM KIPPUR
Alden Solovy, Deborah Lipstadt and Limmud Chavruta Project
Thank you for journeying with us over these past weeks! On the Eve of Yom Kippur, we bring you our final three Ma’alot resources that you can download, print and reflect upon during the day.
- Will we be kind to ourselves?
Poet Alden Solovy shares his poem ‘Cry No More’ – a meditation that prepares for the intensity of the day by urging us to show compassion for ourselves.
- How will we be changed?
Historian Deborah Lipstadt guides us through the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur, showcasing how this most personal act of remembrance is not just an exercise in nostalgia, but rather, a way of changing our very selves.
- What will we say?
Our ‘Lashon’ Chavruta text, introduced by EJ Cohen, stresses the most essential tool we use both to harm and to repair the world around us: words. By considering our use of language, we can substitute kindness and truth in the world for much of the evil it contains.
