Federation & PNG - Sigd: A Virtual Celebration of Jewish Unity


Zoom Event

Contact Federation Administrator

Federation and P2G are excited to invite you to a virtual celebration of the Sigd, organized by JAFI’s Regional Director to the Northeast, Sigal Kanotopsky.


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! A link to register and more information on the webinar can be found in the invite below. I would appreciate if you could forward this invitation to community members who might be interested in attending.
