Ten Rituals for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

As we approach this time of renewal and reflection we take stock of the past year and offer confessions for what we have done wrong in the hopes that we have learned from our mistakes. We strive to greet the new year with an open heart and an open mind. This list includes new approaches to the confessional (vidui), a tutorial on shofar-blowing and prayers for those who are unable to fast. Visit the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur sections to explore these holidays more fully. Shanah tovah u’metukah!
