The High Holy Days

Rabbi & Brenda

by Rabbi Jeremy & Brenda Storch

The fall season is considered the time of the high holy days for the Jewish community.  Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is observed on the first and second day of Tishri (September/ October).  Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, falls on the tenth day of Tishri.  It is the most solemn day of the Jewish year.  This year the fall on September 5th and 14th respectively.

The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day ofthe seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.  Do no regular work, but present an offering made to the Lord by fire”.

Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is a time for personal introspection and prayer, a time of “putting your spiritual house in order”.  It is the “Day of Judgment” as Jews

worldwide examine their past deeds, and ask for forgiveness for sin.  It is also the “Day of Remembrance”, as they review the history of their people and pray for Israel.

The ten days starting with Rosh Hashanah and ending with Yom Kippur are commonly known as the Days of Awe (Yamim Noraim) or the Days of Repentance. This is a time for serious introspection, a time to consider the sins of the previous year and repent before Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the most sacred of the Jewish holidays; it is the “Sabbath of Sabbaths.”  Once a year that the High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the nation.    What started on Rosh Hashanah, repentance & self-evaluation, was completed on Yom Kippur with atonement and regeneration.
