Honoring the Jewish High Holidays

In the Jewish Faith the most Holy Time of year is The High Holidays, which begin with Rosh Hashanah and end with Yom Kippur. This time is about self reflection, seeking forgiveness and achieving personal growth.  No matter your religion, let us all honor this Holy Time and look within to create opportunity for personal expansion and change.
Rosh Hashanah’s is the beginning of the Jewish New Year, it is a time for reflecting on your life and challenging yourself to become a better person.  Observed from Sunset Sept 13 – Evening Sept 15 this year.

Traditionally Apples are eaten with honey to signify a “sweet start” to the new year, The Shofar or Rams Horn is also blown each morning except on Shabbat – Saturdays – the Day of rest.

Aseret Yimei Teshuva or The Ten Days of Repentance is the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  This time is meant for self reflection and are an opportunity for change and growth.
Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement is observed with a period of fasting, prayer, self-reflection, synagogue services. On that day they ask forgiveness from God. The day after Yom Kippur is often observed with prayer, asking others for forgiveness and charity Yom Kippur is from Sunset September 22 – Nightfall Sept 23 this year.
Take time to reflect on your true essence which is Loving, Kind and Patient. Acknowledging your beautiful Body, Mind and Spirit which will shine through your eyes.
