Shabbat Shalom to the Sha’are Shalom family,


I hope everyone had a happy and meaningful Rosh Hashanah! 


This Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is called “Shabbat Shuvah,” the “Shabbat of Repentance/Return” after the Haftarah reading from the prophet Hoshea that begins, “Return, O Israel, to Ado-nai…” 


Our Torah reading for Saturday is Ha’azinu, a poem meant to remind our ancestors about the covenant and their relationship with God when they settle in the Holy Land.


Then on Sunday evening we’ll gather for Kol Nidrei and the beginning of Yom Kippur. 


I want to thank all the volunteers who set up, cleaned up, greeted, led prayers, offered readings, poured honey, helped with parking, and anyone who did a thousand other tasks to make our Rosh Hashanah so positive. Thank you!


Wishing everyone Shana Tovah, a good New Year, and looking ahead to Yom Kippur: G’mar ketivah ve’hatimah tovah, May we all be written and sealed in the Book of Life!


Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Tow
