Shabbat Shuva

Sep 23, 2023    Rabbi Ira Brawer

This shabbat is Shabbat Shuva, literally the Sabbath of Return, the shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, during these 10 Days of Awe. This is a time of introspection and repentance in preparation for Yom Kippur. The message of the prophets that we read about in the Haftarah portions is a call for Israel to return, to repent, to be renewed and refreshed. That message is still important for us as well. Let us prepare our hearts for this time together.
