Join the United Jewish People’s Order and the Morris Winchevsky School for our secular humanist celebrations of Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur.

“Nothing could be worse than a return to normality. Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.” — Arundhati Roy

What better time than Rosh Hashonah to dream of imagine the new world that could emerge from this worldwide crisis. What would the world be like if racism and mass incarceration, the climate crisis, and economic inequality were replaced by justice, freedom, and care for the planet? Come imagine with us!

At Yom Kippur is, a time of reflection, atonement and a time to remember and honour the dead. Together, we will grieve those who haved died from the current pandemic, at the hands of police or prison systems, and due to the violence of colonialism. And we will celebrate the movements for justice that are driving us to carve out a new world order! We will celebrate the resilience of movements for justice that continue to dream of a new world.

Please join us! We have room for 100 devices (laptops, phones, tablets, phone-ins) at our Third Seyder. UJPO members and MWS families have first priority.

We have kept our ticket prices low to accommodate as many people as possible. However, our organization, like many, has suffered significant financial loss due to Covid-19. We invite you, if you are able, to make a donation on top of your ticket purchase to help bring us back to financial health.

We will send a link to join the online gathering to registrants closer to the date, along with some instructions and tips for online events.
