High Holy Days
At the beginning of September, Jewish communities around the globe will observe the High Holy Days. This especially sacred time in the Jewish calendar emphasizes the need to strengthen our spiritual and personal integrity. The music, liturgy and blowing of the shofar (ram's horn) seek to engender candid introspection about ultimate values and responsibilities. The High Holy Days constitute a wake-up call to reclaim the spiritual and personal integrity we have seen abraded in an ever ethically compromised world.
