Our world needs healing & transformation
Please come join The Shalom Center for Spiritually Rich High Holidays on Zoom:
Rosh Hashanah | September 25-27th
Yom Kippur | October 4-5th
The central message of Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur:
We can heal, repair, and transform ourselves, our society, and the life support system of planet earth.
The High Holidays offer us a time for deep, honest self-reflection. In what ways have we manifested our highest spiritual selves, both in our personal lives and in working to build a society which embodies justice, love, caring for the stranger, the powerless, the poor, the hungry, homeless, refugees, and those seeking to be respected and cared for? What have we done to protect the life-support system of the planet? The High Holy Days offer a structure for this self-reflection so we can become more fully embodied sparks of divine light and love. It requires that we actually engage in teshuva, transformation, and change. We are called to take responsibility for the ways in which we have treated others in less than kind ways, whether in our actions towards other individuals or in the ways in which we engage in our larger society. Where did we miss the mark and what can we do differently going forward?
Cat Zavis and Rabbi Lerner will lead us through much of the traditional high holiday prayers. And they will share reflections on God, and the connection between Jewish theology and the pressing political, social, and economic issues of our time. Ami Goodman will provide musical inspiration.
