Special: Live from Temple B'rith Kodesh: The Kol Nidrei Service for Yom Kippur

Sunday, September 24, 2023 at 7:30 pm

Yom Kippur (יום כיפור “Day of Atonement”) is the holiest day of the Jewish year, and brings the High Holy Days to a close. It is a day set aside to atone for the sins of the past year, and is observed by fasting and prayer. The liturgy for Yom Kippur contains some of the most ancient prayers and melodies of the Jewish spiritual tradition.

Tune in for the annual broadcast of the Kol Nidre Service from Rochester’s Temple B’rith Kodesh, made possible with support from the Louis S. and Molly B. Wolk Foundation. Hosted by WXXI's Jeanne Fisher, the Yom Kippur Service will be broadcast on Sunday, September 24, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. on WXXI Classical 91.5, led by Senior Rabbi Peter Stein, Assistant Rabbi Rochelle Tulik, Cantor Keri Berger, Choir Director Jason Berger and the TBK Choir.

Temple B'rith Kodesh was founded in 1848 as an Orthodox synagogue with 12 members. It is the oldest Jewish congregation and the largest Reform temple in the greater Rochester area.
