Yizkor: A gentle shift from grief to purpose as we heal together
The personal gate of honoring the memory of those who have died is a compelling and necessary passage for our own growth. We have experienced much loss and may feel shaken and uncertain about the future. Wisely, our tradition gives us this opportunity to express our sorrow in community through liturgy, chant, and the sharing of stories. This encourages us to infuse the New Year with meaning and purpose so that their names will be remembered for blessing
Neilah: Finding courage through reflection and renewal
The gates are closing. Have we done the sacred work of teshuvah? Are we ready to build an ethical, meaningful life and engage in restorative work? Our final prayers and reflections together invite us to release an exuberant ecstatic “Yes!” Together, we can meet the challenges and opportunities of this New Year, panim al panim, face to face, with the Divine and with each other!
