*This Shabbat has a special name -
- the Sabbath of Return, which takes its name from the weekly Haftarah reading. Can you see the similarity between the words
It suggests that this Shabbat, between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, is a particularly important time to act on some of the commitments we made to ourselves on Rosh Hashanah, a time to close the gap between the good intentions and our actions. Of the many lessons Moses taught, one that resonates most with me is an idea embedded in his teaching: words that come from the heart enter the heart....
As you prepare for Yom Kippur...please note that we have included a personal prayer at the beginning of the
machzor for those who cannot fast.
I look forward to sharing with you a meaningful and uplifting Yom Kippur.
