2017 High Holidays with Or Emet
Sabes Jewish Community Center
4330 S. Cedar Lake Rd., St. Louis Park
Or Emet, the Minnesota Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, is celebrating this year’s High Holidays with the following events led by Madrikh Harold Londer and Rabbinic Candidate Eva Cohen: Erev Rosh Hashanah, Wednesday, Sept. 20, 7 p.m.; Kol Nidre, Friday, Sept. 29, 7 p.m.; Yom Kippur, Saturday, Sept. 30, 4 p.m. For Humanistic Jews, the High Holidays are a time to reflect on the relationship of the universe to human need and desire. We assess our behavior during the past year and affirm the possibilities for change, improvement and happiness. The High Holidays open the Jewish year with the most important message of Jewish history: human dignity is not the gift of destiny; it is a human achievement, requiring courage and self-reliance. Everyone is welcome. No tickets are required. Or Emet welcomes non-perishable donations at all services. For general inquiries contact
