Shavua tov! As we approach #RoshHashanah, #YomKippur and the start of the Jewish year, here are ten short ideas which might help you focus your davening and ensure you have a meaningful and transformative experience. Click to download as a one-pager.
Number one. Life is short. However much life expectancy has risen, we will not, in one lifetime, be able to achieve everything we might wish to achieve. This life is all we have. So the question is: How shall we use it well?
Number two. Life itself, every breath we take, is the gift of God. Life is not something we may take for granted. If we do, we will fail to celebrate it. Yes, we believe in life after death, but it is in life before death that we truly find human greatness.

Sunday at sunset #RoshHashanah the Jewish New Year begins. Over the next two days millions of Jews around the world will spend time with family and friends and pray for the usual things- health, happiness, the ability to provide for one's loved ones... 1/5
With growing global anti-Semitism, many of us will also worry and wonder why in so many places it feels like what Germany must have felt like in the 1930s on the eve of WWII. I know my Holocaust survivor mother said this just the other day. 2/5
Whatever your belief or cause for celebration, will you take a moment over the next days and week to stop to think about how you can personally combat anti-Semitism? Have you laughed at a potentially dangerous joke? Have you not reported a hate tweet? Have you stood idly by 3/5
