High Holy Days 5779

Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish new year, which is observed in the fall, is a major opportunity to acknowledge and let go of the personal habits that prevent us from being the persons we hope to be. Jewish tradition provides us with a number of ways we can prepare for the upcoming Days of Awe (the days between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur). During this period, individuals examine their behavior over the past year, consider atonement for misdeeds, and seek a closeness with God. -- reprint from ReformJudaism.org
