12:00 pm Mourning Into Dancing | The Music of Debbie Friedman with Student Cantor Mike Jarvis Yom Kippur Special Musical Event (Waller Chapel)
Debbie Friedman and her music are primarily responsible for congregations’ transformation from stoic sanctuaries of organs and hymnals to the joyous gatherings of folk music and pianos and guitars that we know today. Student Cantor Mike Jarvis will share some of the most beautiful pieces from Friedman’s prolific repertoire, most of which are rarely heard in congregations.  He’ll also share her remarkable story and why her decision to drag a largely unwilling Reform Movement toward a modern sound may have saved American Judaism.

1:00 pm Kaddish with Rabbi Rapport (Fishman Library)
The Kaddish is the essential prayer of remembrance and yet it speaks not of remembrance or death, rather of God and life. The roots of the Kaddish reach back to Biblical times and yet its use continues to evolve in our own lives today. “The origins of the Kaddish are mysterious…” come learn and share as we begin to unlock this mystery of memory and faith.
