Jewish High Holy Days are a time for spiritual renewal

Some people take the High Holy Days very seriously, with preparation including attempts to contact others to forgive and be forgiven. They also cook up Holy Day specialties, send greeting cards, practice shofar blowing, and so much more. Others treat the Holy Days in a rote manner as something they always need to do at this time of the year. Yet everyone has reason to seek something more this year, given the recent spirit-challenging events of our area.

The Doce fire and the Yarnell Hill disaster have challenged us all to dig deeper for meaning, for solace, and for spiritual uplifting. The High Holy Days give us the opportunity to start to address these ongoing needs.

Beit Torah Jewish Congregation welcomes all to join us in High Holy Day observances. A forgiveness service (Selichot) will be observed at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, at Rabbi Dr. Plotkin's home and will include an airing of "Hunger in America." Rosh HaShanah will also start at the Rabbi's at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, with services and a festive dinner in Chino Valley. The 10 a.m. services for both Thursday, Sept. 5 and Friday. Sept. 6, will be at Stepping Stones, Room 4, in Prescott Valley. Both will be followed by lunch. Weather permitting, Thursday lunch will be combined with Taschlich Casting Away of Sins at nearby Fain Park.

On Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, Kol Nidre, will start at 6:30 p.m. at GPUUC meeting hall Friday, Sept. 13, in Prescott. Saturday, Sept. 14, morning services will start in Chino Valley at the Rabbi's, while afternoon services (including Yiskor) through Break the Fast will start at Stepping Stones, room 2 in Prescott Valley at 1 p.m., with shofar and Break the Fast at 7:15 p.m.

To RSVP, for further details or to coordinate donations such as food, set-up and clean-up, call 237-0390, email ansheitorah@cableone.net or visit www.onetorah.org.
