eNews Update 9/17/2020
To say that 2020 has been a challenging year would be an understatement. Just as one crisis seems to begin subsiding another one comes our way, and it can feel like we are trapped in a never-ending cycle where one anxious day bleeds into the next without anything ever changing.
Then, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, all of a sudden comes our way. In a regular year we might reflect upon repentance and forgiveness. This year, however, the greatest lesson that this holiday has to teach us may be about time itself.
