Jews refer to Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, as the High Holy Days, or the Days of Awe. These holidays usually fall in September or October and are characterized by long synagogue services and a focus on repentance.
If you are going to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services this year, or preparing to celebrate these holidays with your family, we hope that a basic overview of the season and its symbols will help you to have a good experience of connection to the community, and even some taste of the ideal spiritual experiences that often elude worshippers on these days.
You can download the Guide to the High Holidays for Interfaith Families as a .pdf file. (Also available in Word format)
