This Friday night is Shabbat Shuvah, the Sabbath between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The name is derived from the opening word of the haftarah reading that urges us: Shuvah Yisrael “Return, O Israel, to the Eternal your God.”
What does that mean for each of us? To whom or what might we be returning? Is it to a sense of goodness? Is it to a sense of being loved? Is it to a connection with those from whom we have strayed? Is it to God?
Join us on Friday Night, October 7 for a Sabbath experience that harkens us to this prophetic calling. This year, Shabbat Shuvah falls on Family Shabbat, so we encourage all children (as well as adults) to bring a shofar to rattle our spirits and set us on a path of return as we prepare ourselves for Yom Kippur.
