High Holy Days & Social Justice

L’shana Tova! This new year, do a mitzvah for your community and celebrate your tzedakah by feeding the hungry.  

“God commands us to "share [our] bread with the hungry…”  —Leviticus (23:22)

Alleviating Hunger & Food Insecurity

On these High Holy Days (5782), as always, we are called to engage in the work of tikkun olam, improving the world in which we live. This year, we are offering two opportunities to contribute to our High Holy Days food drive to alleviate hunger and food insecurity in North Carolina through our longstanding partnerships with Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD) and Inter-Faith Council of Chapel Hill (IFC).

Help families on the High Holy Days by making a donation through our virtual Tzedakah Box. Tzedakah box donations for September and October will continue go to IFC and UMD.

Urban Ministries of Durham connects with the community to end homelessness and fight poverty by offering food, shelter and a future to neighbors in need.

Inter-Faith Council of Chapel Hill mobilizes our community to address homelessness, hunger, and economic disparity.

High Holy Days at Judea Reform

 High Holy Days for 2022/5783 will begin at sundown on Sunday, September 25, 2022 

Although the High Holidays — the two days of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) — occupy three days only, they lie within a web of liturgy and customs that extend from the beginning of the preceding Hebrew month of Elul through Yom Kippur . The focus of this entire period is the process of teshuvah, or repentance, whereby a Jew admits to sins, asks for forgiveness, and resolves not to repeat the sins. Recognizing the psychological difficulty of self-examination and personal change, the rabbis instituted a 40-day period whose intensity spirals toward its culmination on Yom Kippur, a day devoted entirely to fasting and repentance.
