The Jewish High Holy Days, beginning with the marking of the new year, Rosh Hashanah, and concluding with the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, are a season of reflection, return and renewal, the most sacred period of the Jewish year. It is a time both intensely personal and introspective, yet also the most communal of the Jewish holidays; a self-examination of our relationship with God, each other, and ourselves.
On the next episode of the public affairs program "Sanctuary," Rabbi Shoshanah Conover, associate rabbi of Temple Sholom in Chicago, and Rabbi Michael Balinsky, executive vice president of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, discuss the power and impact of this period with moderator Aaron Cohen.
This episode of "Sanctuary" will air at noon every Sunday in August on ABC's Live Well Network, 7.2. Check local cable listings for the channel. The program also can be viewed any time on the Jewish United Fund website .
"Sanctuary" is a joint production of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago and the Chicago Board of Rabbis, in cooperation with ABC7.
