Yom Kippur

9:00am Outdoor service at GUCI

Experience Yom Kippur surrounded by nature and your community. Immersed in the beauty of GUCI, we will bring spirituality to our traditional liturgy in song. Limited space is available, but we hope you will join us in this meditative and peaceful outdoor space.

9:00am Tot Service

Families with young children, preschool to kindergarten, will feel inspired by this Yorn Kippur experience. While this experience is intended for children under 5 years of age, all are welcome.

9:30am Family Service

Join us for a multi-generational experience designed for school-aged children and their families. The melodies will transport us and the stories and prayers will connect us to the meaning of this day.

11:00am Traditional Morning Service

Our traditional morning service is complete with beautiful music, prayers, and a litany of confessions asking God (and ourselves) to forgive us so we can start the new year with a clean slate. Traditionally, we fast and practice self-denial in order to create a pensive space for personal reflection.

1:30pm Healing Service

Join our clergy for a service intended to bring comfort and healing through beautiful music, readings, and prayer.

2:30pm Learning Sessions

Meditate, educate, and soothe your soul! Spend part of the afternoon with us to be present on this day of repentance with several opportunities meant to guide and inspire you.

4:00pm Yizkor Service

This service honors and celebrates our loved ones, and is scheduled for each of the three festival holidays (Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot) as well as during the afternoon of this most sacred day of Yom Kippur. All are welcome to this somber moment of remembering, but some believe there is special significance to reciting the yizkor prayers after one’s parent has died. On Yom Kippur, this service is always especially moving.

5:00pm N’ilah/Havdalah

As the gates of repentance begin to close, join our clergy team to conclude Yom Kippur and to hear the final blasts of the shofar. Challah and juice will be available after the service to break the fast.
