Shabbat Shuva

G-d knows we will stray*
Now it is time to reflect
Sabbath of Return

 

This Shabbat is called Shabbat Shuva – literally, the Sabbath of Return. While we should  always reflect on the choices we make and always “know before whom [we] stand“, the Ten Days of  Repentance – and particularly Shabbat Shuva – is a time when we are more aware of our obligation  to apologize to others, find peace with (return to) our G-d, and consider how each of us can be a better person in the year to come.

May we all have a meaningful Shabbat, an easy Yom Kippur fast, and find the coming year one of goodness and blessing.

G’mar Chatimah Tovah

 

 

*From this week’s portion Vayeilech:
Deuteronomy 31:16God said to Moses, ‘When you go and lie with your ancestors, this nation shall rise up and stray after the alien gods of the land into which they are coming. They will thus abandon Me and violate the covenant that I have made with them.
