Discover the Secrets of the High Holidays
Prepare yourself for the upcoming Holidays. Discover how to personalize the Holidays and make them a truly transformative experience.
1) Rosh Hashana - Rebirth
The New Year is the beginning of a new cycle in time. The haunting sound of the Shofar (ram's horn) echoes the voice of our soul. Through this sound and through the other traditions of this holiday, we learn how to renew our lives.
2) 10 Days of Teshuvah - Building the Ten Faculties of your Psyche
The Kabbalah teaches us that the soul has ten faculties, which reflect ten Divine attributes, the sefirot. In the ten days of Return between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur we have the ability to rebuild these ten faculties and return to the essence of who we truly are.
3) Yom Kippur - Sanctity
Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year, is when the soul reaches the closest point to its Source. Learn how to sanctify your life, and introduce the eternal in all our temporal activities. On this day we are compared to white angels - with the ability to reach beyond the mortal.
4) Sukkot and Simchat Torah - Joy
Learn how to access the inner joy in your spirit, even when you are not in the mood to celebrate. Sukkot, the holiday of our rejoicing, opens up in us channels of dance and song, that allows us to transcend, elevate and transform our mundane existence into a true celebration of unity.
