Yom Kippur at the BINA Secular Yeshiva in Tel Aviv – 2023

יום כיפור ישראלי, 2020

Join BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change for our annual secular-Israeli style Yom Kippur at the BINA Secular Yeshiva in Tel Aviv.

Our Yom Kippur will include three communal gatherings (Kol Nidre, Musaf and Neila) – each combining traditional and non-traditional prayer, reflection and song – as well as opportunities for learning and reflection.

The communal gatherings will be led by Ayala Deckel, Eedo Avidan and Elliot Glassenberg – and will take place primarily in Hebrew with some translation and interpretation into English, and will include instrumental accompaniment. Most of the learning sessions will also take place in Hebrew except for one session in English on Sunday evening.

Fasting will be respected in public spaces.

Location: BINA Secular Yeshiva, Tel Aviv (Located inside Tel Aviv’s Nature Gardens / “Ganei HaTeva”, entrance via Lavon Street 6 or Herzl Street 155. Exact location on Google Maps: https://g.page/BINA_Secular_Yeshiva
