Yom Ha-Ma’al: Pre- Yom Kippur Learning and Music with Hadar

Hosted By: Hadar

In ancient times, the day before Yom Kippur was a mini-holiday in its own right, known as Ma’al (derived from the Aramaic word for “erev”). This was an important day in which people asked each other for forgiveness. It is mentioned in the Talmud numerous times, and until recently, Jewish communities in Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, continued to refer to Erev Yom Kippur by this name.

This year, on Yom Ha-Ma’al, prepare for Yom Kippur spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually. Join us for any part of the day to learn about the themes and prayers of the day and enjoy soulful melodies and excerpts from the Yom Kippur liturgy.
