      • The Holiness Code - 1:15 to 2:00pm. Taught by Rabbi Finestone. Each year in our afternoon service, we read Leviticus 19, known as “the Holiness Code.” It begins with the imperative: “You shall be holy,” and numerous commandments follow, such as, “Thou shalt not go about as a talebearer among thy people,” or “thou shalt not stand idly by the blood of thy neighbor…” But what does it mean to “be holy?” What vision does our Torah give us of a “holy” life? And how do all those commandments help us reach that goal?
      • The Yom Kippur journey between wholeness and vulnerability - 2:15 to 3:00pm. Taught by Nina Rubin. On Yom Kippur we are asked to each face our own mortality.  We fast, we wear white and we contemplate the precarious miracle that is our life. When we face death, we more fully understand the precious gift of our lives. Yom Kippur invites us into the paradox of embracing both our wholeness and our vulnerability in fully living our lives in the year to come.
      • The Kabbalah of Yom Kippur - 3:15 to 4:00pm. Taught by Rabbi Hillel Katzir. The mystical symbolism of Kabbalah teaches that our actions here on Earth have cosmic consequences!  Our prayers, and our acts of atonement and repentance, on Yom Kippur can change our lives; they can also change the universe!  We'll talk about what the symbolism of Kabbalah can teach us about our holy tasks on the Day of Atonement.  
    • Afternoon service, 4:30 pm
    • Yizkor Memorial and Concluding Neilah service, 5:00pm.

Yizkor Memorial Book

During Yom Kippur services we remember loved ones we have lost. When we say the Yizkor Prayer, we honor the memories of those we have lost through tzedakah. Each year for High Holidays, we publish a memorial book to remember our loved ones who have passed away. To include your loved ones in this year's Yizkor Memorial Book, please visit: HH - 2022 Yizkor Memorial Book Request Form - Form - Congregation Har Shalom

Tzedakah

We encourage all our members to send a financial donation to the Larimer Country Food Bank or bring in canned goods on Kol Nidre or Yom Kippur as part of this year’s High Holiday observance. As we fast for one day, we acknowledge our support for all those in our community who face hunger every day, especially during the current crisis. Please make checks out to the Larimer County Food Bank (not CHS).
