We are pleased to again present some AWEsome programs during the Days of Awe, Yamim Noraim ימים נוראים in-person at the MNjcc on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

with Alon Nashman on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur Day
9:00 - 10:00 am at MNjcc in the Chapel
Chanting is a way of tuning the soul in preparation for the High Holidays. We will sit in song and silence as a spiritual ablution, to open ourselves to the divine, and to compose ourselves spiritually, mentally and emotionally.  Participants are asked to arrive on time, as we can build more energy when we share the entire experience in sacred community. 
Alon Nashman is an actor and creator of theatre. His work has toured across Canada and internationally and includes Kafka and Son, Scorched, Alphonse, Hirsch and Charlotte: A Tri-Coloured Play with Music.  Alon is a student of Rabbi Shefa Gold and Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi z”l, who have guided him in the ways of Jewish chant. 


with Sivan Piatigorsky-Roth
10:00 - 11:00 am at the MNjcc (in the Chapel) on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur
Join rabbinical student Sivan Piatigorsky-Rosh for a three-part series on the thirteen attributes of G-d, called

 “the core of the Selichot prayers,” the words that we use to beg for divine compassion.

Sivan will do a close reading of the biblical verses that these attributes come from, as well as commentaries, liturgy, and historical uses. Special attention will be paid to the ideas of mercy, bargaining, and how we name G-d.

Feel welcome to attend on either/both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur.

Sivan Piatigorsky-Roth (he/they) grew up at the Narayever and is now a Shana Alef Rabbinical student at Hebrew College and cartoonist currently living in Boston.

with Avi Schonbach, Naomi and Shmuel Sharir, Ben and Esther Geva
Yom Kippur afternoon, 4:00 pm, at the MNJCC
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War. More than 2,500 Israelis were killed in this horrific conflict, which began with a surprise attack by Egypt and Syria on Yom Kippur 1973. To mark this somber anniversary, members of our shul who were there during the war will share some of their memories and experiences. This session will take place at 4:00 pm on Yom Kippur Day at the MNjcc. Narayever member Avi Schonbach, Naomi and Shmuel Sharir, and Ben and Esther Geva, will present. Together we will honour the memory of those who were lost.
