This year, the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, ends at sundown on September 17. This is followed by 10 days of atonement culminating in Yom Kippur. Sherry Milke will talk about Rosh Hashanah and the history and meaning of the Jewish High Holy Days.
This year, the Autumnal Equinox falls on September 23. The equinox is a time of equal balance between dark and light. It is a time of change, of metamorphosis, of things coming apart to be put back together new in another
cycle. Anne Rostosky will talk about the astronomical and pagan importance of the autumnal equinox to humans.
The Fall Equinox is a time to reflect on our place in the universe. Preston Luitweiler will talk about how this annual event relates to our UU Pinciples, the importance of asking questions and responsibly searching for truth and
meaning and nurturing our respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
We will also be recognizing our Children’s Faith Development volunteers and staff during the service!
