Wisdom & Reflections for a Very Different New Year
The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the Washington Board of Rabbis are pleased to 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.
We are excited to feature 29 rabbis throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia, to share their wisdom and reflections for this very different New Year during the Hebrew month of Elul—the 29 days leading up to Rosh Hashanah.
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 with a process of spiritual introspection, personal growth, and by deepening our connections with one another.
L’shanah Tovah! May we be inscribed in the Book of Life!
In a year unlike any other, our local synagogues and community organizations have come up with countless opportunities to enrich your High Holiday celebrations.
