Watch with Makom: Transparent + Preparing for the High Holy Days

Saturday, September 5, 2020 16 Elul 5780

7:00 PM - 8:30 PMRavenswood Neighborhood

Elul is a spiritual liftoff - preparing you for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Together, we’ll gather outside at a location in Ravenswood for a picnic and to watch the Yom Kippur episode of Transparent (The Book of Life) and discuss how we prepare for the High Holy Days during this time of year. Then, we'll close with Havdalah. 

Medieval Jewish philosopher Maimonides describes the daily ritual of blowing the shofar during Elul as, “a wake-up call to sleepers, designed to rouse us from our complacency.” What wake-up call do we want to rouse in ourselves? How do we want to reflect on the year as we prepare for a new one? 

Elul is a time for breaking out of the monotonous and stepping out of the daily grind. Join us for this Watch with Makom program + conversation. 

Location in Ravenswood for this in person event will be provided after registration. Please note this is NOT a rain or shine event, in the event of inclement weather, the event will be canceled. 

Sorry, Registration has ended.
