What Are the High Holidays?
The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashanah is the head of the Jewish year, the time when G‑d reinvests Himself in creation as we crown Him king of the universe through prayer, shofar blasts, and celebration. A week later, the High Holidays reach their crescendo with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Like angels, we neither eat nor drink for 25 hours. Dressed in white, we pray in the synagogue—united as one people, children of One Father.

Do "Kapparot" through Tzedakah!

Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. “Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree”. By giving Tzedakah before Yom Kippur, you also fulfill the custom of "kapparot", which can be done with money instead of a chicken.
