Sunday, September 6, 2015 9:15 am — Informal Meet and Greet with Nicole 9:30 am — High Holy Day Fair: Choose Your Path! Explorations for all levels and ages of learners.

“Walking the Path” Activities for Families
In the Talmud, it says that God opens two books on Rosh Hashanah. The book of Tzadikim, righteous people, and the book of Reshaim, wicked people. Anyone who is not yet a Tzaddik (good person) or a Rasha (wicked person) has a few days before Yom Kippur to fall into one of those categories. There are only two paths to walk. You can be either a Tzaddik or a Rasha, nothing in between! Come ‘Walk the Path’ at our High Holiy Day Fair. There will be many explorations for all levels and ages of learners. Everyone can ‘Walk the Path’ toward your own explorations.

Adult Expeditions Along the Pathway of the High Holy Days: Arriving at Repentance and Forgiveness
The High Holy Day period is a time of renewal, reflection, and dedication to better ways of living. And Jewish tradition draws a very specific behavioral road map to allow us to achieve forgiveness in both directions. Rabbi Biatch will explore some of these pathways with adult participants as part of our High Holy Day Fair.

Add Your Scroll to the Ark
“Days are like scrolls…write on them only what you want remembered.” To enter into the High Holy Day mindset, add your prayers and aspirations for the future on your personal and private scroll, and place it in the Goodman Sanctuary ark.
