Beginning the evening of September 29th, Jews around the world will turn their hearts to God and observe the High Holy Days. This sacred season has a deep, spiritual meaning for God’s people. Even Jesus observed Jewish festivals like these thousands of years ago.
Each of these holy days holds a special purpose, and the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur —the “ten days of awe” — centers around three actions of faith that help us live out our devotion to God in tangible ways.
The Three Pillars of the High Holy Days are just as meaningful to Christians as they are to Jews. Join Yael Eckstein as she goes on this personal journey of faith and explore the work of our hearts — together. This video series features an inspirational lesson on each of the spiritual pillars — watch now to experience the High Holy Days — and our God — in a renewed way!
Three Pillars of the High Holy Days
- The first pillar is — Getting right with God, or repentance. Repenting is turning away from the things that are getting in the way of being right with God.
- The second pillar is — Prayer. As we express our deepest prayers of concern along with our praise and thanksgiving, we do so in expectation that He will not only hear us but draw us close.
- The final pillar is — Charity. During this sacred season, the Jewish people focus on giving charity as an outpouring of love and faith in God.
You can join The Fellowship in partnering with God on the last Pillar of the High Holy Days and help provide nourishing food to an elderly Jew or family in desperate need.
Your gift of faith will be in obedience of God’s biblical command in Deuteronomy 15:10. “Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.”
