Yom Kippur at the BINA Secular Yeshiva in Tel Aviv
Join BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change, for a special 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 Elah Bruno, Bar Shani, Ariel Magal and Elliot Glassenberg – and will take place primarily in Hebrew with some translation and interpretation into English, and will include instrumental accompaniment.
All are welcome to attend, but space is limited and advance registration is required. The event will take place outdoors and according to Ministry of Health Guidelines. Fasting will be respected in public spaces.
