The Jewish High Holy Days ...

The Jewish High Holy Days are the most solemn time on the Jewish calendar. The ten-day period between Rosh Hashanah (The Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) are a period of renewal and reflection.

Larry Josephson talks with Rabbi Ismar Schorsch, Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, about the history, liturgy and customs of the High Holy Days, and the value of these ancient rituals in the modern age.
