The High Holy Days can be a bit early for some of us some years. For others, no doubt, they are a bit late. Of course, according to the Jewish calendar, they are right on time! And yet, regardless of when the High Holy Days fall on our civil calendar, we often feel unprepared.
The most important preparations, however, are those things we can only do on our own: searching our souls, making amends for past wrongs, and of course creating time and space for self renewal.
When you join us this year for High Holy Days services, we hope that you will be inspired by our liturgy, music and sermons. We hope that you will feel embraced by this sacred community. And, most of all, we hope that these days of holiness will be right on time for you.
May our High Holy Days services inspire a beautiful new year for all of us.
Rabbi Straus & Cantor Shukiar
