About the event

When the Temple was destroyed 2000 years ago and the sacrificial rites ended, how did our The Rabbis reimagine The Day of Atonement and what safeguards did they put into place to prevent overindulgence in pietistic, ascetic behaviors? What does the structure of the Talmud’s Tractate Yoma - The Yom Kippur Tractate - teach us about Rabbinic priorities regarding atonement and abstinence?  Join with Rabbi Cytryn in this 3 week series. Wednesday, May 6, 13 and 20, 11 a.m. - 12: 15 p.m. On Zoom, of course. We’ll provide the Torah; you provide the nosh. May 6 - The Avodah Service and the Hierarchy of Priests, Rabbis and Us May 13 - The Transformation of Yom Kippur into Our Holiday May 20 - The Curious Case of Pikuach Nefesh - The Ancient Discussion About Who Should Not Be Fasting on Yom Kippur
