The High Holy Days are Here!

For over 5000 years Rosh Hashanah has traditionally commemorated the beginning of the world. It also marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year.
The 10 Days of Awe and introspection start with Rosh Hashanah and end with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. This is a space for personal examination and reflection. This is the time to examine the past year’s conflicts with our family, with our friends and with the greater world. We examine our so-called “sins of commission” and “sins of omission”, what we did or didn’t do or should have done differently. Clear up misunderstandings. Where possible, we make amends. Resolve conflict with others. And within ourselves.
On Yom Kippur, we ask for forgiveness for ourselves, and we forgive others. Repent. Let go of resentment, pain, and guilt. We resolve to do better in the future using our new and renewed insights from our 10 days of reflection. We begin the New Year with our “slates washed clean”, refreshed and renewed and ready to go!
Happy New Year!
