Fast of Gedalia: Restoration and Reconnection
Rabbi David Silber / September 27, 2019
The aseret yemei teshuva are a time of repentance, introspection and reconnection with God. They invite us to think about how we can continue to transcend our past and move forward with the tools of the High Holidays – kol shofar, selichot, and prayer. This is part of series of recorded thoughts from Rabbi David Silber about this time and what demands – drishot – it makes of us.
