Many people ask whether things quiet down over the Summer at Sinai? And while maybe it’s a tiny bit slower here, we spend much of the summer getting ready for the High Holy Days. 

We invest so much time and love into the High Holy Days because it is a sacred season that brings our community together. The Holy Days are a chance for us to pray together, to learn together, to simply be together and want to laugh together. We celebrate that even though we all connect to Sinai in different ways during the year, we are united by our observance and celebration of Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. 

The centerpiece of the High Holy Day liturgy is the Unetaneh Tokef prayer. In this prayer we recite the famous line: “Repentance (teshuva), prayer (tefilah), and charity (tzedakah) annul the severity of the decree.” These are the things we can do in our lives to make a positive difference, for ourselves and those around us. (Teshuva, tefilah, tzedakah) What resonates with us? One of the above? All of the above? What will you connect with this year? What services will you attend on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur day? Our Main Service? Or our Reconsidered Service?  Will you take a walk on the nature trail, study with me and Rabbi Levenberg or join Beth Shafer for a Healing Service?  

As we begin 5784, we are grateful that the Holy Days will bring our many paths together, and we are excited to share this most beautiful season with you as we celebrate our Many Journeys, One Home. L’shanah Tovah!
