Discussion Topic:  In a typical year, the Yamim HaNoraim (High Holy Days) call upon us to engage in deep introspection and heartwork. Given the pandemic, this year we have the added challenge of being unable to engage with this work in many of the ways we have grown to know and appreciate. Rabbi Roland will share general sources and reflections upon the work of this season with a special focus on how to succeed given the limitations of this year. There will also be ample time for Q & A, which will hopefully lead to a discussion about how we turn this year’s Yamim HaNoraim into an opportunity for finding deeper meaning and thoughtful engagement.

He earned his BA from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ and his Master’s in Jewish Education from Hebrew College.
