Shabbat Shuvah October 6, 2016 - 4 Tishri 5777

Shabbat Shuvah On the Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we read from three prophetic books as the Haftarah (the additional or concluding) reading after the Torah is read.  The three selections from Hosea, Micah and Joel all have thematic material related to the season.  The very first words of the Haftarah are from Hosea 14:2:  “Shuvah Yisrael,” from which the Shabbat receives its name.  The Hosea reading focuses in on turning away from sin.  The Micah passage, from chapter 7, speaks of God’s forgiveness.  Joel chapter 2 speaks of sounding the shofar and declaring a fast day.  We will be examining these texts at our Parashat Hashavuah (weekly portion) study this Shabbat at 9:30am, prior to the 10:30am Shabbat Shuvah Learner’s Minyan.  Join us!
