HIGH HOLIDAYS 2017
SCHEDULE WITH DETAILS

Page 1

On Rosh Hoshana we blow the shofar in the synagogue
It is a minhag (custom) during the entire High Holiday period
to be extremely patient, forgiving & sensitive to others

  We are supposed to curtail our anger, arguments & criticisms

How can we ask G-d for forgiveness, compassion & patience,
if we can't act this way towards those who we interact with daily?
