Rosh Hashana and the urgency of time

The key contemporary message of Rosh Hashana is that our time is finite and we need to live with a certain kind of “calm urgency”prioritising what we want to get out of our lives in whatever time is remaining. Perhaps our greatest need as human beings is to live purpose-driven lives, where we can feel what we did, and how we behaved, where we have mattered to those around us – whatever relationship they had to us. What kinds of changes do we need to make, to our schedules; to our goals and to our relationships, in order to begin to move in the direction of a fully meaningful existence? In this session we will explore how these themes are revealed in the Jewish New Year prayers and how to use certain spiritual exercises to create a renewed self.
