Judaism of the Week: Preparing for Yom Kippur

We've made it through Rosh Hashana, but there's much to prepare for - if you didn't make it to synagogue last week, don't miss our amazing cantor and rabbi, along with our warm and welcoming community!

Here's some articles to get you prepared and emotionally in the right place for Yom Kippur:
The eScapegoat: Collecting Sins in Preparation for Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement)
We're bringing back the goat! This year, send your sins to this little fella and show up with a clean conscience on the big day. Visit the site now (**it's adorable, though not halachically binding).
