Cover for ALEPH Alliance for Jewish Renewal
This evening, we begin Yom Kippur, twenty-six hours in which, as Reb Zalman z’’l put it, G-d becomes incarnated in time. In a 2007 interview, he compared the Jewish traditions of Yom Kippur to the legend of the phoenix, an opportunity to rise from the ashes each year. “The teachings are that on Rosh Hashanah a new year comes down. And on Yom Kippur, the old year gets replaced,” he said. “There is a willingness from the divine to aid in forgiveness and scrap the old sins.”The essence of Jewish Renewal is fully present in the spirit of this holiday. It is a time for self compassion, a time for letting go, and a time to embrace a new way of being. It is a time for renewal.We want to thank you for continuing to share yourself and your community with us, and we invite you to continue to share your reflections so that we may all continue to grow in right relationship with one another, with the earth, and with ourselves in the coming year. From all of us at ALEPH, thank you for renewing Judaism with us. G'mar Chatimah Tovah! ... See MoreSee Less
