As fall approaches, Jews throughout the world begin to prepare for a unique ten-day period of prayer, self-examination, fasting, and repentance. It is time for the Yamim Noraim, the Days of Awe, the High Holy Days: Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. This ten-day period is preceded by a month of reflection: the Hebrew month of Elul. During this time, morning worship includes special penitential prayers and concludes with the blowing of the shofar as a reminder of the approaching season of atonement. In some communities, this is also a time to visit the graves of loved ones.

This year Rosh HaShanah begins at sundown on Wednesday, September 4, and Yom Kippur begins at sundown on Friday, September 13.

The books and music featured below will help bring knowledge and meaning to your observance of the Yamim Noraim.
