The Sabbath of Return: Repentance, Conscience and Karma

Wed, 10/02/2019 - 9:38am -- Clergy

The Shabbat between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur is called “the Sabbath of Return” (Shabbat Shuvah) or “Repentance.” Technically, its name is derived from the Haftarah for this Shabbat, Hosea 14:2-10, which begins with the plea, “Return, O Israel, to the Eternal your God, for you have stumbled in your iniquity!” More broadly, it refers to one the principle themes of the High Holy Days, especially, Yom Kippur, the religious idea of “repentance.”
