Days of Awe Booklet

This booklet from Interfaithfamily, High Holy Days: the Basics, explains the Days of Awe, starting with Rosh Hashanah and running through Yom Kippur, including what to expect at synagogue services, what the home celebrations may look like and concluding with a glossary of useful terms.

Al Chet Worksheet

On Yom Kippur, we will recite a litany of confession, Al chet sh’chatanu l’fanecha, “For the sin that we have committed. . .”

The word chet, translated as “sin,” means to miss the mark, to stray from the way we want to be and behave in the world.  We invite you to reflect on what needs confession in your own life, and to contribute it to be read with our community’s litany on Yom Kippur. Please click here to fill out a worksheet. It may be read during the Al Chet portion of the service. Your contribution is anonymous.
