Shabbat Shuva
Days of Awe
Category: Jewish Holidays
Language: English
Rabbi Elyahu Kin delivers a lecture of where our focus should be during the first ten days of the New Year. "Shabbat Shuva" is the Sabbath between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur when the portion read for the Haftara begins with the prophet Hoshea's words "Shuva Yisrael" - "Return, O Israel, to the Lord your G-d, for you have stumbled in your iniquity." The ten days leading up to Yom Kippur are known to be days of introspection and Repentance.
