Rabbi Josh Whinston

High Holy Days are just around the corner. Have you prepared? Are you ready for the introspection of the holy days? Have you found time to ask forgiveness for words spoken too sharply? Have you done a Heshbon Hanefesh, an accounting of your soul over this past year? The time is now. The more we can show up to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur having done the preparatory work, the more meaningful the days can be for each of us. Find the time this week. Call someone you’ve been meaning to get in touch with. Forgive someone who has wronged you. Ask for forgiveness, even if it is embarrassing to recall what you did.

Our sages speak of the shofar blast as an alarm to wake us up from our slumber and encourage us to change our ways. Once again, we will have an opportunity for folks who can’t be with us in the sanctuary to hear the shofar at our tashlich service at Furstenberg Park. This service was so successful last year we knew we had to do it again! So bring your shofar with you and come blow with us as a community.
