2016/5777 High Holiday Letter – Embracing our Truest Selves

Dear Hevreh, Whenever the High Holidays come around, it always seems that there is pressure to make these days count more than others.

Those weeks are often called by the name of the opponent, as in "Dallas Week" when my favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles, play the hated Dallas Cowboys. That week boasts a lot of hype and a lot of energy and enthusiasm because you really want your team to win that game. That[...]
