Join the United Jewish People’s Order and the Morris Winchevsky Shule for our meaningful secular celebrations of Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur to usher in the new year, 5783! On Rosh Hashonah, we begin a ten day period, using symbols, foods, and for some, fasting to help us step out of ordinary time and into a period of reflection. Our uplifting and inspiring celebrations of the Jewish New Year will include our traditional shofar blowing, readings, poetry, and Yiddish, Hebrew, Arabic and English music led by well-known Toronto musicians, David Wall and Marilyn Lerner — including Kol Nidre on Yom Kippur. We will also have music by up and coming artist and performer, Saskia Laufer. We look forward to safely celebrating, reflecting, and singing together with you!

During Passover 2019, a group of United Jewish People’s Order members formed a sponsorship group to bring refugees from Israel/ Palestine to Canada. As the global refugee crisis continues to decimate the lives of many, we are forming more refugee sponsorship groups and orienting our Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur celebrations around the themes of refugeedom. For more information on joining our action, please contact Lia Tarachansky, the Director of Education (educationdirector@winchevskycentre.org).

This New Year we welcome people from around the globe to gather with us online. While we hope to be together in person soon, we remain vigilant for all of our safety.

Rosh Hashonah: Monday, September 26, 2022 — 10:30 a.m. EDT
