The Essence of Holiness
Compose your own Book of Life for this auspicious year 5777.
Sign and seal it with prayer and action.
At this season of teshuvah and repentance, tzedakah and contributing to the greater good, let us remember the essence of living a religious life.
Religion isn't about believing things. It's ethical alchemy. It's about behaving in a way that changes you, that gives you intimations of holiness and sacredness.
Rabbi Tamara Miller
