1) Kol Nidre Service:

Whether you go to Kol Nidre because your mother asked you to or because that is what Jews do or to talk to God or because its a good place to meet single men/women, we want to welcome you "home" to your Jewish family. Come alone or with a friend. We'll be glad to see you.

Building on previous years incredible experiences of community and inspiration, we are once again offering our Kol Nidre service in Boulder. The service includes traditional elements presented in the "Adventure Rabbi" style.

For example, the service will include some, but not all, the traditional prayers. Rather than recite all the prayers, we attempt to focus more deeply on the ones we do say.

A spiritual pinnacle of the night is chanting Kol Nidre outside beneath the stars. We can't promise that a fox will run through the center of the circle in the middle of chanting Kol Nidre like it did our first year, but it certainly was amazing!!

There will also be time for small group discussions. Also, this is one of the only nights a year in which Rabbi Korngold delivers a full sermon, giving us plenty to think and talk about.

If you do not wish to handle money on Yom Kippur, please register in advance. If you would prefer to pay at the door, please arrive early so as not to miss the opening of the service.

Who:

Program Description:
Our time together will include select, primary prayers such as Al Chet, Tavo, and Avienu Malkeinu and chanting of Torah. But the heart of our time together will be group discussion, individual and small group work, gentle yoga and strolls on the nearby trails in South Boulder.

We use our time together to sincerely face the questions Yom Kippur asks of us: Who was I this year? Was I the person I most want to be? How will I be in the year to come? Rather than sitting in synagogue listening to someone preach, we reflect, discuss, journal, and when appropriate, share our hopes and intentions for the year ahead.

Past participants have called this the pinnacle Adventure Rabbi experience, because it combines Jewish practice and outdoor experience in a deeply transformative way.

Dress: Please dress comfortably and wear shoes you can walk and stretch in. Some people like to wear white on Yom Kippur as a symbol of purity. No ties or dress shoes needed.

Pack: Please bring a yoga mat, sunhat,sunglasses and raincoat.

Electronics: Please leave your electronics including you cell phones at home.

Sermon and Prayerbook: Please be aware that there will not be a traditional service with prayer books, sermon and extended Torah reading. If you have a particular prayer that you would like us to say, please tell me and I will try to include it.

Sign-up: Registration for this event will be limited to 60 people. The program is free for members. For all others the fee is $125 until Sept 7. After Sept 7, +$25. Register >>

Childcare: We are offering concurrent Yom Kippur programs for k-6th graders. If you have a middle school student who would like to observe Yom Kippur, ask Elaine if he or she can intern in the k-6th program. Post-Bnai mitzvah age students are welcome on the adult retreat with a parent.
