High Holidays 2021/5782 (Hebrew calendar year)

The Jewish High Holidays are some of the most significant days in the Jewish calendar. They include Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year which begins 9/6), the 10 Days of Returning (the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur),  Yom Kippur (our collective day of soul-accounting which begins 9/15), and Sukkot (an 8-day celebration of the autumn bounty which begins 9/20).
Our HMI team has put together thoughtful new resources to help make this year’s High Holidays relatable and enjoyable. We hope these will help you bring the holidays into your home and into your soul.

This resource walks you through the three steps for Jewish relationship-healing: cheshbon hanefesh (spiritual accounting), teshuvah (returning to your values), and tashlich (ritually releasing your baggage).

Tasting the Sweetness of the High Holidays
