Next Gen Yom Kippur Virtual Break Fast
Next Gen hopes that folks in their 20's and 30's will join us to virtually break our Yom Kippur fast together after evening services end on 9/28 around 7:30 pm.  We look forward to coming together to eat and reflect on this year's High Holy Days.  Please prepare a meal that will allow you to break your fast joyously.  We hope you have a meaningful fast, if that is your custom, and look forward to coming together as a community. Please RSVP here.
