Shofar

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, marks the end of the 10 day period known as the Days of Repentance. The day is devoted to repentance for sins committed over the course of the previous year.

A Yizkor memorial service takes place at the Yom Kippur afternoon Memorial service.

 

Schedule of Services

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services are times of spiritual renewal for many of our Kol Ami community. We offer early and late seating for our evening and morning services. Youth services (grades 1-6) are offered concurrently with each morning service, while youth in grades 7 and above are welcome and encouraged to attend services in the Sanctuary.

On both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur afternoons, a service for families of young children is open to the community.

Members of the White Plains Synagogues join us for a community Tashlich service on the first day of Rosh Hashanah. The Yom Kippur services end with Yizkor (a service in remembrance of our loved ones) and Neilah (the dramatic closing service of Yom Kippur) and a beautiful Havdalah ceremony with our children.
