A series of podcasts, recordings and music for the High Holydays can be found on the Kol Nefesh website.

Kol Nefesh will be running a nightly series of events about the Noachide code, beginning on Sunday September 20th until Motzei Shabbat September 26th. 

The period of the High Holy Days is our culturally mandated time for reflecting on our lives. It provides an opportunity for turning over our core values and assumptions and pondering which areas of our lives we need to develop and work on. 

Each year Kol Nefesh Masorti Synagogue offers a unique ten-day spiritual retreat during the Ten Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. As a community we take a pertinent theme and explore it in depth from a variety of perspectives. 

This year we will be exploring the rabbinic idea that humans are all bound to keep a set of common laws called the “Shevah Mitsvot Bnei Noah” – the seven commandments of the descendants of Noah. In this season we imagine that all humans pass before God to be judged; but judged for what? We will examine how these Noachide rules evolved and what they say about the bonds of obligation linking all humans. 

Please join us for all or some of the shiurim this year! All sessions are stand-alone, requiring no background knowledge. 

Please note that almost all evening sessions will have the following 3-fold structure. You are welcome to come for just part of the programme. 

  • 7:40-8:00 pm – Mini-S’lichot 
  • 8–9 pm – Session 
  • 9:00-9:20 – Reflections and processing 

All shiurim will be via the Kol Nefesh Zoom link

In each of these shiurim we will look at one of the seven classical Noachide laws in detail. 

  • Thursday 24th September – No evening session. 
  • Thursday 24th September – 3:00–4:30pm: Rabbi Joel will lead a discussion on “Strange Worship” or Idolatry. Are non-Jews prohibited from worshiping their own Gods? 
  • Friday 25th September – Rabbi Joel will speak in the KNMS pre-Shabbat Zoom service about the prohibition against theft. 5:00pm Minchah, 5:15 Hellos, 5:30 Yedid Nefesh, Leyning: D’var Torah – “What is property and what is theft?”, 6:00 Prayers for the community, the country, the State of Israel, the sick. Kaddish, 6:10-6:30 Kabbalat Shabbat 
  • Motzei Shabbat 26th September 7.50pm – Rabbi Joel will be in conversation with senior veterinarian Daniel Preter on the Noachide prohibition against “tearing a limb from a living animal” and how attitudes to animal welfare have changed.
