Or Emet, the Minnesota Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, is celebrating Kol Nidre with a service led by rabbinical candidate Eva Cohen.
For Humanistic Jews, the High Holidays are a time to reflect on the relationship of the universe to human need and desire. We assess our behavior during the past year and affirm the possibilities for change, improvement and happiness. We acknowledge that while some things may be beyond our control, other things can be attained with human will and intelligence. The High Holidays open the Jewish year with the most important message of Jewish history: human dignity is not the gift of destiny; it is a human achievement, requiring courage and self-reliance.
Kol Nidre (Yom Kippur eve) serves as a reminder of our humanness, our fallibility, and our connection to all humanity.
In keeping with High Holiday tradition, Or Emet will collect food and other miscellaneous donations. Non-perishable items will be welcome at all High Holiday services. Donated items will be shared with the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center. Most needed are canned meat, peanut butter, dry beans, rice, personal hygiene/feminine care items, and bathroom tissue.
No tickets are required. Everyone is welcome. Doors open at 6:30pm.
Please direct general inquiries about Or Emet and/or membership to firstname.lastname@example.org.
