Creation and re-creation – The high holidays in Judaism: The holiest days in the Jewish calendar are the first ten days of each year, which begins in the fall. Rosh Hashana is new year’s day, symbolically the birthday of the whole creation. Ten days later, Yom Kippur is the day of atonement, when God’s promise of re-creation for the new year is fulfilled. In between, the Days of Awe are shaped by repentance and reconciliation across the Jewish community. Learn the themes of these high holy days and the practices that lead Jews through them year by year. Cantor Gail Karp, retired from Temple Emanuel, Davenport. In Luther Loft.
