Rabbi Noah's Erev Yom Kippur Sermon
Rabbi Noah's Rosh Hashana Service
For Individual Reflection
Here I am,
one soul within this prayer community.
Like those around me, I bring my own concerns and yearnings
to this place,
hoping they will fnd expression in the time-hallowed words
of my people and in the traditions cherished by generations
May I bring the best of my energies to these Holy Days,
approaching this spiritual work with open heart and mind,
sincerity, and sustained focus on the deep questions of
Who am I? How shall I live? Where have I fallen short—
This night I take up the challenge of the Days of Awe:
cheshbon hanefesh—a searching examination of my life,
a moral inventory of my deeds, words, and thoughts.
During the next ten days,
let me face the truth about myself and listen to Your still,
Taking comfort in Your promise that I am always free to change,
released from staleness and routine,
let me know the joy of beginning again.
May I gain strength as I share this task with those around me,
united by our common purpose: tikkun midot(improving our
characters) and tikkun olam(repairing the world).
I now prepare myself to pray—one soul amidst this holy congregation.
