Sigd - A Celebration of Jewish Unity


Contact Ronit Cohen Kott

For hundreds of years, generation after generation, Ethiopian Jews celebrated a holy day that is dedicated to prayers reflecting the community’s centuries-old aspirations to return to the holy city, Jerusalem. 

When Yom Kippur ends, the 7-weeks count begins towards the Sigd Day. While Yom Kipur is a day of individual repentance, the Sigd is the day of communal reflection and Tikkun. 

In modern times, the Sigd symbolizes the never-ending dream of a united Jewish peoplehood and Tikkun Olam. This is a wonderful opportunity for world Jewry to take this journey together in celebrating the Sigd.

Please join us on November 3rd, 2021 at 12pm EST for a virtual celebration of Jewish Unity!

Guest Speaker: Rabbi Dr. Sharon Shalom
