A Moment in Time: The Ten Days of Reflection

A change in perspective can shift the focus of our day - and even our lives. We have an opportunity to harness "a moment in time," allowing our souls to be both grounded and lifted. This blog shows how the simplest of daily experiences can become the most meaningful of life's blessings. All it takes is a moment in time.

Rabbi Zach Shapiro is the Spiritual Leader of Temple Akiba, a Reform Jewish Congregation in Culver City, CA. He earned his B.A. in Spanish from Colby College in 1992, and his M.A.H.L. from HUC-JIR in 1996. He was ordained from HUC-JIR - Cincinnati, in 1997.

Dear all,

The days between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur are known as the Ten Days of Repentance (though I think of them more as ten days of reflection). We prepare ourselves individually so that we can come together as a community on Yom Kippur.

Over the next few days, look – really look into the mirror. Who is there? Are you using your voice appropriately? Are you being true to yourself? Are you honoring your finite soulprint? Are you inspiring others to harness goodness?

This is our opportunity to fine tune our mission on earth.

Starting.… in this moment in time!

With love and Shalom,

 

Rabbi Zach Shapiro
