Join One Jewish Evanston at Beth Hillel Congregation Bnai Emunah (map) for their Hashanah Rabbah service. After services we will gather for brunch and some holiday learning in the congregational sukkah! Bring your lulav and etrog if you can. Extra willow branches will be provided.
A traditional view holds that the Yamim Noraim (High Holidays) do not really end until the last day of Sukkot, that the Gates of Repentance do not close at Neilah on Yom Kippur, but at Hashanah Rabbah. This view is reflected in the unique, and beautiful, liturgy of Hashanah Rabbah, which too few of us generally get to experience.
All are welcome to attend, including those not affiliated with any of the six participating communities, at no charge. However, advance registration is requested. For more information or to register, please e-mail Dan Cedarbaum at [email protected] or call him at 847-492-5200.
"One Jewish Evanston" is a consortium of six Evanston communities: Beth Emet The Free Synagogue, the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation, the Lomdim Chavurah, Minyan Shirat ha-Agam, the Evanston Orthodox Minyan, and Northwestern University Hillel. Together these communities span the spectrum of Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, and Orthodox Jews. In addition, we are delighted to have Bayit Evanston as a participating community.
