High Holy Days 2021

"From Survive to Thrive!"

This year’s High Holy Days will be particularly poignant and reflective.

Over and over again in this last year we were shaken by the blasts of the shofar calling us to attention. We changed our lives in order to stay safe while we were forced to examine, and reckon with ourselves as well as the systems we live in and begin to rectify them, but that work must continue.

 

As we hear the shofar blasts once again, that call is demanding we remain awake. We need to rebuild a better version of ourselves and the world we live in, a home to all, where everyone can feel whole. We do this through teshuvah - the process of returning - and draw strength from the rituals which have sustained generations of Jews through challenging times, like the moment we find ourselves in now. In this new year of 5782, we resolve to make sure that as individuals and as a community, we are striving for peace. 

 

Please join Rabbi David Minkus, Cantor Rachel Rosenberg, Cantor Jonathan Miller, and the rest of the Rodfei Zedek community for High Holy Day services to spend time both as an individual and in sacred community reflecting, returning, and praying so that we may enter 5782 prepared to manifest our full potential, and prepared to answer to the calls of the shofar, which asks us to respond to the cries of the world while acknowledging the splendor that exists simultaneously. Together, we will move from surviving to thriving in 5782!
