Join us on Zoom for a special Yom Kippur program.

The Book of Jonah, one of the most famous and exciting stories in the Bible, is traditionally read on Yom Kippur at synagogues around the world. Join us on Zoom for a learning session with Rabbi Aviad Bodner, in preparation for the Day of Atonement as we explore the central question of the story: Why did Jonah run away from God?!

Rabbi Aviad Bodner serves as Rabbi of Congregation Ramath Orah on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He earned an LLB in Law from Bar Ilan University and received his semicha from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. Before Ramath Orah, he served as Rabbi at Stanton Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side for five years (2014-2019). He also teaches at the Ramaz Upper school in the Tanach, Talmud and JLT departments.

This is a Zoom program. Please see the Zoom link in your order confirmation.
