1) Kol Nidre Service:

Whether you go to Kol Nidre because your mother asked you to or because that is what Jews do or to talk to God or because its a good place to meet single men/women, we want to welcome you "home" to your Jewish family. Come alone or with a friend. We'll be glad to see you.

Building on previous years incredible experiences of community and inspiration, we are once again offering our Kol Nidre service in Boulder. The service includes traditional elements presented in the "Adventure Rabbi" style.

For example, the service will include some, but not all, the traditional prayers. Rather than recite all the prayers, we attempt to focus more deeply on the ones we do say.

A spiritual pinnacle of the night is chanting Kol Nidre outside beneath the stars. We can't promise that a fox will run through the center of the circle in the middle of chanting Kol Nidre like it did our first year, but it certainly was amazing!!

There will also be time for small group discussions. Also, this is one of the only nights a year in which Rabbi Korngold delivers a full sermon, giving us plenty to think and talk about.

If you do not wish to handle money on Yom Kippur, please register in advance. If you would prefer to pay at the door, please arrive early so as not to miss the opening of the service.

Curious how we are different from other Jewish congregations? Here's a link to the recorded Kol Nidre 2013 broadcast >>

Where: Casey Middle School Auditorium
1301 High St Boulder, CO
Boulder, CO 80304

Note: We have finally moved Kol Nidre services to a location that has stadium seating, a stage and a stable technology center. We hope this will enhance our participants ability to see and hear the service.

Fee: Free for members, all others $36

Lodging: We recommend staying at Chautauqua, where our day programs will be held>>

When: Tuesday Oct 11, 2016 - 7:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

Please note that fees are non-refundable, but are transferable.

Yom Kippor in ColoradoA reflective retreat limited to 60 participants, facilitated by Rabbi Korngold.

[[ SOLD OUT ]]

Wednesday Oct 12, 2016-- 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Doors open at 9:00 a.m.

Where:
Chautauqua Community House, Chautauqua Park

Who:

All ages of adults. Post B'nai Mitzvah age and older welcome when accompanied by parent.

Program Description:
Our time together will include select, primary prayers such as Al Chet, Tavo, and Avienu Malkeinu and chanting of Torah. But the heart of our time together will be group discussion, individual and small group work, gentle yoga and strolls on the nearby trails in South Boulder.

We use our time together to sincerely face the questions Yom Kippur asks of us: Who was I this year? Was I the person I most want to be? How will I be in the year to come? Rather than sitting in synagogue listening to someone preach, we reflect, discuss, journal, and when appropriate, share our hopes and intentions for the year ahead.

Past participants have called this the pinnacle Adventure Rabbi experience, because it combines Jewish practice and outdoor experience in a deeply transformative way.

Dress: Please dress comfortably and wear shoes you can walk and stretch in. Some people like to wear white on Yom Kippur as a symbol of purity. No ties or dress shoes needed.

Pack: Please bring a yoga mat, sunhat,sunglasses and raincoat.

Electronics: Please leave your electronics including you cell phones at home.

Sermon and Prayerbook: Please be aware that there will not be a traditional service with prayer books, sermon and extended Torah reading. If you have a particular prayer that you would like us to say, please tell me and I will try to include it.

Sign-up: Registration for this event will be limited to 60 people. The program is free for members. For all others the fee is $99. Register >>

Childcare: We are offering concurrent Yom Kippur programs for k-6th graders. If you have a middle school student who would like to observe Yom Kippur, ask Elaine if he or she can intern in the k-6th program. Post-Bnai mitzvah age students are welcome on the adult retreat with a parent.

Please note that fees are non-refundable, but are transferable.
3) and 4) Elementary Age Children's Programs

This year we are offering two engaging programs for students in grades K-2 and 3-5. 6th graders are welcome to join too! Each program is being designed by the top-notch team of Rabbi Evon Yakar and our great Adventure Educator, Elaine Barenblat, and will be led by Elaine and her staff. (Rabbi Evon will be at our base in Lake Tahoe leading services.) The program will include arts and crafts, "hiking" and other activities designed to help the kids learn about themselves, each other, and Yom Kippur.

Elaine is known for leading in a way that is accessible and fun and makes the holiday age appropriate.

This is a drop-off event. Parents: go on the retreat!

What Kids Need to Bring:

  • Please make sure your child has closed toe shoes as we will be walking/hiking.
  • Dress them in layers in case it is chilly or gets warm.

  • You will be checking your child in before the program and signing them out when it is over. Please inform us of any allergies or medical conditions we should be aware of.
