In her sermon this Shabbat, Rabbi Samantha Natov reminds us to keep working towards spiritual growth after the High Holy Days:
“What happens the day after Yom Kippur? It’s as if we have a clean slate… Until a few hours, days, or weeks later. In some ways what happens between Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah is even more important. May we keep moving ahead towards our ideals with humility and compassion for ourselves and others.”
“Think about how it feels to be in touch with our deepest truths. How does it feel to earnestly express feeling sorry, or to take in another’s heartfelt apology?” During the High Holy Days, Rabbi Samantha Natov encourages us to acknowledge our vulnerability and find meaning together as a community.
“May we begin this season for renewal with the inner strength to make the changes we need to.” Rabbi Samantha Natov inspires us to direct energy from Tisha B’Av, a time of communal mourning, towards meaningful personal growth.
