The High Holy Days are a time of year when we are asked to engage in a process of doing a moral self-assessment; seeking forgiveness from others for harms we’ve done; making amends as appropriate; and resolving to do better in the future.
The mood of the Jewish New Year is a mix of reflection on the year that has just ended, hope for the year that’s begun, gratitude for the goodness in our lives, and general celebration.
At Temple Judea, we celebrate all the goodness in our lives, express our appreciation for our blessings and one another, and vow to focus on the opportunity to become our best selves in the year ahead.
