Days of Awe
Rev. Elaine Beth Peresluha
The Jewish High Holy Days- Rosh Hashanah, the “Jewish New Year” and Yom Kippur, the “Day of Atonement”-and the ten days in between are also known as the Days of Awe or the Ten Days of Repentance. Today we reflect on our own lives, the role of forgiveness and its relationship to atonement.

Why I Chose East Shore
East Shore is a community which inspires me to be a better person. It encourages me to reflect and focus on the values that are important to me, the values that I tend to overlook in the everyday busy-ness of life. And it's made up of incredible people with whom I enjoy spending time and from whom I learn so much!
I come to East Shore to be with and learn from warm, wise, and witty people, to join in community and global action groups, to be moved and inspired by powerful services and wonderful music, and to keep growing my spirit and expanding my contributions.
I come to East Shore to be with warm and open hearted people, who care about the world and work to reach out and heal as many people both near and far as possible.
I come to East Shore because it reminds me of how to be in the world and to have hope.
