A Time for Renewal
Reverend Dave Clements, Interim Minister Consultant
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the High Holidays, are celebrated by Jewish people all over the world. Rosh Hashanah (literally “head of the year” or New Year) is the Jewish New Year. Yom Kippur, which comes ten days after Rosh Hashanah, is the Day of Atonement. Together, they are sometimes referred to as the Jewish High Holidays. They mark a period known both as the “Days of Awe” and the “Ten Days of Repentance,” during which Jewish people are supposed to reflect on the sins they have committed during the past year. Rosh Hashanah combines the joy of a New Year celebration and its theme of renewal with the seriousness associated with confronting one’s failings and seeking forgiveness, both from God and from those one has wronged. Come and explore with me what we can learn about renewal from these Jewish Holidays.
