How can Yom Kippur support our work on the climate crisis, both our spiritual resiliency and our activism? We will explore this vital question through elements of Yom Kippur, including the book of Jonah (traditionally chanted near the end of Yom Kippur, about a reluctant prophet who successfully affects political change) as well as communal Yom Kippur atonement/at-one-ment liturgy. We will also learn about the new ritual of wearing a small piece of sackcloth* as a reminder of our responsibility to the well-being of Gaia.
*We recommend that you acquire a small square of sackcloth with a safety pin for the ritual.
