The Ten Days of Awe or Yamim Noraim is a time for reflection, both personal and congregational. From our reflections, we strive to make changes in our personal and congregational lives. Over the past several years, I have written about personal reflection and change, but not so much about congregational reflection.
Our secular and Hebrew calendars are tied to seasons, regular milestones and specific holidays. So, once again, the religious and public schools begin academic years. And in our congregation we get geared up for the High Holy Days.
