Jewish New Year Wake up and smell the coffee!   A precious gift – the opportunity to do tshuva (repentance).

The Sabbath (Shabbat) between Rosh Hashanah- the Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur is traditionally called Shabbat Shuvah, (Sabbath of Return) due to the special Torah portion that is read. The ominous beginning words Shuvah Yisrael “Return O Israel”, from the prophecy of Hoshea. It is also referred to as Shabbat Shuvah because it falls during the Ten Days of Repentance.

The ten days  of repentance is a gift we receive from the Almighty G-D to give us the opportunity to repent in prayer, good deeds and charity. G-D made a promise with the forefathers thousands of years ago, and throughout history the Jewish people have sinned many times and still G-D gives us the opportunity personally and communally to repent with sincerity.

As we all take this solemn critical period to self improve ourselves may we comprehend how each one of us is a part of a very special nation. The nation of Israel was given the Torah and the land of Israel. The gifts we were given were vast and valued. May we merit during the days of awe to really heed the Shofar and truly repent and return to G-D.
