Join Us for a Meaningful Humanistic Yom Kippur Celebration!

Sunday, September 24 | 12:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Boulder Public Library Meadows Branch, 4800 Baseline Rd, Boulder

Humanistic Judaism considers Yom Kippur to be the culmination of the self-analysis that was initiated on Rosh Hashanah. We are offered the opportunity to ask forgiveness from ourselves as well as from those we have wronged, and we vow to be active, involved, caring people in the coming year.

It is also a time for remembrance. We say a Humanistic Kaddish as a memorial and listen to the shofar one last time.  Some Humanistic Jews fast on Yom Kippur, some do not. For some, this connects them with the Jewish community. For others, it raises their consciousness about world hunger. Whatever you choose to do, we hope you’ll come to our event to consider your humanness and both our human capabilities and fallibilities. We aim to ultimately achieve a sense of hope and commitment for the coming year.

If possible, help us plan our event by clicking the “attend” button on our Meetup page. We will be in the Community Meeting Room. Turn right into the room after entering the library.

COVID-19 safety measures: Event will be indoors. If you have been exposed to an individual who has tested positive for COVID or have experienced COVID symptoms in the past 10 days, for the safety of others, please skip this event and plan to attend one of our events in the future. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

Beth Ami, the only Humanistic Jewish congregation in Colorado, is a proud affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We celebrate Jewish holidays, learning and life cycle events through the secular lens of history, culture, and reason. We believe in the human capacity to create a better world without supernatural intervention.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. We encourage anyone interested in learning about Humanistic Judaism to attend this and all our events.

Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!

Tishrei Tidbits – Yom Kippur

How do I know Judaism is still alive and well? More people go to synagogue for Kol NIdrei than any other time of the year- and there’s no food served for at least twenty four hours!
