The Yamim Nora’im (High Holy Days) serve as a type of anchor. Every year, regardless of where we’ve been, they bring us back together, back home. This year, we invite you to come into our homes.
The Yamim Nora’im ask us to not only show up, but to prepare our soul for the spiritual journey of the season. During Elul, the month leading up to the Yamim Nora’im, we engage in the spiritual work of Heshbon Hanefesh, or literally, the accounting of the soul. It pushes us to take a deep dive into who we are, what the past year has been like, and where we’d like to go.
This year, several community members will lead us in Heshbon Hanefesh through home-hosted gatherings during the weeks leading up to Rosh Hashanah. These will provide several different avenues for spiritual and intellectual work. We are thrilled to offer 15 of these groups, and hope that you will find one that fits who you are and what you need this year.
These sessions are for BJ members only, with the exception of Hatanu Lefanekha, Navigating the High Holy Days, and Hearing the Shofar Mindfully, which are open to all.
