Ten Days of Awesomeness 2013 / 5774

Please read ahead for 2013 High Holiday celebration information at UMBC and check back at this site regularly as it will be upated as new info becomes available.

On the Jewish calendar, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are called “Yamim Nora’im,” which means “awesome days.” In English, we often hear this High Holiday season referred to as the Days of Awe. The days are awesome because of their intensity. The days are awesome because we are called upon by Jewish tradition to reflect on our lives during these days like no other time of the year. The days are awesome because of the magnitude of the feasting and fasting. The days are awesome because Jewish tradition challenges us to account for a year’s worth of action and make right what was wrong and to make amends with those whom we have wronged.
