I hope everyone who observed the fast on Yom Kippur had a safe fast and if not, at least had some time for self-reflection. Now just because the Jewish High Holidays may be over, doesn’t mean that we can forget the commitments and resolutions we promised to uphold. While I love that we have ten days to make resolutions, apologize to those we have hurt, and ask G-d for forgiveness, it is certainly not limited to just the High Holiday season. I hope that you consider this message and make thanksgiving and reflection part of your daily routine.
If you are looking to do some service to the community please consider attending the Tzedek team’s program, Crafting with children from Noah’ Endeavor this Sunday at 1:40pm. Please check out the facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/410526789013972/.
We are also looking for those with lots of creative energy to help us decorate the Sukkah (that awesome structure outside of Hillel at the moment) on Sunday at 5:30 pm. The theme created by the Manoa Arts team is Around the World, so bring yourself and your best ideas!
Then at 7:00 pm, the Shabbat and Holidays team will be putting on a “traditional” Holiday meal (from Leonardo’s Pizza) in the Sukkah to discuss the the importance and traditions of Sukkot. This event is open to all students who wish to experience the glory of Sukkot in the Sukkah and have a delicious meal!
For those who are interested, please check the calendar at ufhillel.org for more information about these programs and more offered by UF Hillel.
As a reminder, Traditional, Conservative and Reform services will begin at 7:30pm tonight followed by a delicious and FREE (thanks to our generous donors) kosher Shabbat dinner
at 8:45pm. We hope that you will join us!
Shabbat Shalom and Go Gators!
