One of the things we are asked to contemplate during Yom Kippur is Teshuva, often translated as Atonement or Repentance. As Rabbi Jonathan Sachs has said, it also means returning, coming home, being given a second chance to decide “who we are and where we truly belong.”
This year, we are also returning home to our wonderful synagogue building after a prolonged absence to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
We are also honored this year to have Student Rabbi, Ora Jacobsen, participate in our services along with our gifted vocalist, Adriana Urato and our wonderful CBY Choir, under the expert direction of David Kimbell, our Music Director and our acclaimed pianist and accompanist, Charlie Curtis.
On behalf of Rabbi Brad Bloom and President Candy Solomon, we invite all CBY members to attend our High Holy Day services and we look forward once again to seeing all of you in person.
