Yom Kippur, the Pontiff Edition.


Many of you have asked about the impact of the Pope’s visit on services being held on Yom Kippur.

Here’s the scoop on free/non-ticketed services in DC:

Fabrangen is holding services, but suggests that you leave plenty of time to arrive at services and pay attention to road closures and news alerts.

Hill Havurah is holding services at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation
212 East Capitol St., NE. so expect parking restrictions.

Here’s a handy guide for getting around town during the Papal visit.

Please let us know if you have any info.

Shabbat Shalom!
