Yom Kippur at Ohel Jacob Synagogue

  |   Holidays, Institutional, Judaism

This year’s Yom Kippur, at Ohel Jacob had a wide participation of members and visitors.

At the sunset of the October 8th we all met in a room at the Novotel José Av. Malhoa in Lisbon, under the leadership of András Fehervari. Facing East in unison, we intone Kol Nidreh, and so welcomed Ohel Jacob members and visitors to the holiest day of the year. In our Synagogue, we gathered for the ceremony of Neílah on the 9th of October. The Ark was opened and the Shofar echoed. Next year in Jerusalem!

The joy of feeling our empowered and increasingly participatory Community made this beginning of the year a very special moment. All together we are building a great community!
