The afternoon provides us with additional opportunities to reflect upon the past year while also exploring central Jewish themes of loss, renewal, and redemption. Our afternoon service, co-led by Rabbi Norman Cohen and Cantor Sternlieb, includes both the reading of the Book of Jonah as well as an in-depth discourse led by our esteemed Scholar-in-Residence. The afternoon liturgy touches on moments of Jewish martyrdom and isolation. We remember the legacies and histories of those upon whose shoulders we stand as a Jewish community. The ritual include both somber and exulted moments, as we assess another year added to the annals of Jewish history.
