HerTorah: Taking Back Yom Kippur: Less Shame, Guilt and Burden; More Love, Growth, and Compassion

Hosted By: SVIVAH


Featuring Rabbi Abby Sosland, Dr. Guila Benchimol, Naama Sadan, and R’ Aliza Sperling
This year, HerTorah is focusing on reframing the harshness, shame, guilt, and burden that surrounds common tropes around Yom Kippur. We are asking ourselves and our teachers:
• Can you repent without shame?
• Do we always need to forgive?
• Can we imagine accepting ourselves and being accepted with love and compassion?
• Does Yom Kippur and “teshuvah” require us to feel burdened or to suffer?
• Can we reimagine Yom Kippur from a place of love – from ourselves and the divine?

SVIVAH’s mission is to empower, strengthen, and nourish Jewish women* through community. SVIVAH is a multigenerational, diverse, powerful collective of Jewish women* dedicated to inspiring, motivating, and celebrating life in sisterhood. In Hebrew, svivah means “to surround her'' and that is precisely our goal. We connect women to each other, to cross-generational wisdom, to Jewish learning, and to the resources we need, in an inclusive, women*-only space. We do this by curating Jewish faith experiences with women at the center, by producing wide-ranging programming, and by amplifying and partnering with organizations in line with our values. (*SVIVAH defines “Jewish woman” as anyone wishing to be included in a circle of Jewish women.)
