A special message

During the High Holy Days, we must ‘choose life’

As Jews gather this Friday evening, we will be welcoming the Sabbath, as well as Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year of 5781. During the upcoming High Holy Days — the 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur — we will engage in prayer and reflect on the year that has passed. Without a doubt, the intention we bring to our prayers will be influenced by the unprecedented global health crisis of these past seven months.
