SEP 16 | Yom Kippur

7:45 to 8:30 AM
with Rabbi David Ellenson
Online; a Zoom link will be in the Member Portal

In 1947, the famed psychiatrist Carl Jung met with Rabbi Leo Baeck, the last head of the German Jewish community prior to its destruction by the Nazis, in a Swiss hotel room. Jung asked Baeck, who he had known prior to World War II, to forgive him the Nazi sympathies he had expressed during the 1930s and requested that Baeck address a spiritual conference that Jung was convening. We will look at a description the famed Hebrew University scholar Gershom Scholem provided of that meeting and consider how the exchange between the two men might inform our own understanding of and approach to forgiveness and reconciliation as we reflect on the meanings Yom Kippur holds for us.

On Yom Kippur, as we pray for forgiveness and repentance, we reflect on how we can be better than we were last year. Yet God does not demand that we be perfect. As we start this New Year, Rabbi Weitzman helps us understand how we can become the best versions of ourselves.
