Prepare now for the holidays and make your home a sanctuary


Our tradition teaches us that we can pray just about anywhere. In the Talmud (Megillah 29a), we read that God will dwells in holy places. Our homes can be holy places. We refer to our homes as a mikdash me’at, a small sanctuary. Now more than ever our homes have become our sanctuaries. While we would love to be gathering in sanctuary these High Holy Days, instead our holy community will be doing so mostly from the comfort and safety of our own homes. This is an opportunity to think of our homes as sacred spaces, as our own sanctuaries. With a little planning, we can create a space in our own homes to experience these Days of Awe.
