High Holyday Zoom Services

To enable our community to come together as one, we will be holding Zoom services - see details below. Zoom access details will be published via our Shalom NNLS emails in the week leading up to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. (For security purposes, these will not be published on our website). Technology permitting, we will also livestream our Zoom services to our public Facebook Page.

Pre-Rosh Hashanah Service

Friday 18th September at 5.45pm

Leshanah Tovah – for a good and worthwhile year

We will reflect and pray together for a year of healing in body and spirit, of reconciliation between people and between humanity and nature, and of mending the injustices in our societies.  

The Yizkor Service

Sunday 27th September at 9.30 – 10.15am

We remember with love and appreciation

We remember together, in solidarity as a community.

This difficult year has brought grief to many and mortality closer to us all.

The service will include an opening reflection with the Unetaneh Tokef prayers, followed by the traditional Yizkor service and added reflections. It will conclude with Psalm 27, the Mourner’s Kaddish and Adon Olam.

Kol Nidrei

Sunday 27th September at 5.30pm

All Vows – we will strive to be faithful before God and humankind

In order to begin Yom Kippur together as one community, we will hold our Kol Nidrei service on zoom, before the fast begins. We recommend everyone to eat before the service, which will end 10 minutes prior to Yom Tov to allow everyone to have a drink and a biscuit before fasting.

The service will include the opening Kol Nidrei sequence and the familiar penitential hymns and selichot prayers as well as a short sermon. (We cannot include ma’ariv itself, which can only be said once Yom Tov has commenced)

(Post) Neilah

Monday 28th September at 7.40pm – just after the fast has ended at 7.32pm

Open our hearts at the closing of the gates

To conclude Yom Kippur together as a community, we will pray the closing parts of Ne’ilah together over zoom. We will begin a few minutes after Yom Tov has ended, to allow people to break their fast with something small.

The service will include the last viddui, or confessional prayers, of Yom Kippur, the powerful closing sequence of Ne’ilah, Havdalah and the shofar.
