Is This the Fast I Desire? Choose-Your-Own Yom Kippur Afternoon of Learning

Hosted Chelsea Feuchs, Rabbinic Intern

After a morning of prayer and contemplation, join these small-group learning sessions with rabbis, artists and teachers, to explore the big question of Yom Kippur: What does God want from us?

We learn from the prophet Isaiah that simply calling out to God does not guarantee a response, so he provides guidance to increase the likelihood that we will be heard. Come study this Yom Kippur haftarah (prophetic text) alongside two other High Holy Day haftarot, the stories of Hannah and Jonah, to discern what makes for effective, persuasive prayer.

Is This the Fast I Desire? Choose-Your-Own Yom Kippur Afternoon of Learning

Hosted Jessica Greenbaum, Poet and Central Teacher

After a morning of prayer and contemplation, join these small-group learning sessions with rabbis, artists and teachers, to explore the big question of Yom Kippur: What does God want from us?

The Yom Kippur haftarah, Isaiah 58, plainly and passionately teaches the difference between thoughtless fasting and authentic repentance. This session will consider the haftarah and several contemporary poems—also plain and passionate—to help us internalize the lessons of Isaiah, on this day and beyond.

Is This the Fast I Desire? Choose-Your-Own Yom Kippur Afternoon of Learning

Hosted Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President, Union for Reform Judaism

After a morning of prayer and contemplation, join these small-group learning sessions with rabbis, artists and teachers, to explore the big question of Yom Kippur: What does God want from us?

During the High Holy Days, how can we transform ourselves and transform the world? At its core, Judaism and the High Holy Days are all about transformation; we can change ourselves, and we can change the world. There is brokenness in every corner of the world and within each of us. In response, some of us focus on our own spiritual growth while others spend their energy fighting for a more just and compassionate world. Which is more urgent? Can we do both simultaneously? We will wrestle with these weighty questions on our holiest day.
