Yom Kippur is the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement” and it is a day set aside to atone for the sins of the past year. No work is performed from sundown today until sundown tomorrow. Much of the holiday will be spent in prayer.
Following Yom Kippur, Sukkot is one of the most joyous holidays, celebrating the harvest. No work is permitted on the first and second days of the holiday. At the end of Sukkot, we observe two more days without work for Shemini Atzeret which is a separate yet connect holy day devoted to the spiritual aspects of the festival of Sukkot.
As October wraps up, we will start off November a private reception for NevBio and then our Winter Commencement on Nov. 6 at the Rio Hotel. November 10 will be a busy day as we start out at Opportunity Village for a grand unveiling of our newest addition to our Mobile Healthcare Clinic. That evening, we are delighted to join Dee Berkley Jewelry for an invitation-only exclusive private viewing event that will benefit the Touro University Nevada Scholarship Fund.
As always, I extend an invitation to the community to learn more about our terrific students and Touro University Nevada by calling my office of advancement at 702-777-3100.
All my best,
CEO and Senior Provost
Touro University Western Division
