Minchah and Ne’ilah: Wednesday, October 9

Approximately 5:00pm

Following a service of remembrance, we return to the Yom Kippur prayers, first with Minchah, the afternoon service, and then N’ilah, the closing service which symbolizes the Closing of the Gates at the end of the Days of Awe. Congregants of all ages are encouraged to bring their personal shofarot for the communal shofar blowing at the conclusion of services. We then celebrate the separation of the holy space of the High Holy Days and the re-entry to everyday life with a spirited Havdalah service.

We offer two separate services:
  • An alternative Ne'ilah service punctuated with music, songs and stories will be held in the Social Hall with Rabbi Grimberg
  • A traditional Ne'ilah service will be held in the sanctuary with Rabbi Hirsh
