Wisdom and Reflections for a Very Different New Year -- August 21st through September 18th

 
On Friday, August 21, the Jewish community will mark the start of the Hebrew month of Elul–and the beginning of a very unusual High Holiday season. While we may not be gathering in person to sound the Shofar (ram’s horn) each day, we can still celebrate this meaningful transition to a New Year through a process of spiritual introspection and personal growth, and by deepening our connections with one another.
 
Join The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the Washington Board of Rabbis as we present Wisdom & Reflections for a Very Different New Year—29 days of learning guided by the diversity, warmth, and wisdom of our local rabbinic community. (Rabbi Hannah will be featured on Friday, September 4th.) As we journey towards Rosh Hashanah, we invite you to find inspiration in a new topic each day. Be sure to follow Federation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest reflections from our very special teachers.
