Temple Israel hosts community memorial service on Yom Kippur


On Yom Kippur Day, Wednesday, Oct. 12, starting at 4:30 p.m., High Holiday services at Temple Israel will be open to the community (no tickets required) beginning with the afternoon prayer service of Mincha. All prayer services will be held in the main sanctuary.

Following Mincha at 6 p.m. there will be a community memorial service at which time all are invited to remember in prayer loved ones who are no longer with us. This service will also recall those who have perished throughout the ages. In addition, there will be a special remembrance for the victims of the Pulse massacre.

Neila follows at approximately 6:30 p.m., which is the final service before the proverbial gates are closed. At Temple Israel, this is a very special time where families/friends, one group at a time, are invited to come to the bimah where the ark will remain open to allow everyone to experience the awe of standing before the Holy Ark and Torahs. This can move us to reflect on our blessings and challenges and resolve to move forward in the new year with God’s help.

Maariv is scheduled for 7:25 p.m. followed by Havdalah and the final Shofar blast at 7:40 p.m. at which time the fast is over.

Temple Israel’s Sisterhood will, once again, provide its annual break the fast in the Roth Social Hall. All members of the community are cordially invited to join the Temple Israel family at this highly anticipated event.

For more information, please call the Temple Israel office at 407-647-3055 or go to the website at http://www.tiflorida.org/ Temple Israel is located at 50 S. Moss Road, Winter Springs, FL 32708.
