Plus61J is proud to present a supplement for the 2017 High Holidays. We bring you a collection of ten short essays reflecting on the values and motifs of the High Holidays. Our contributors come from the United States, Israel and Australia. They were asked to choose elements of the season – based on texts or rituals – and reflect on the ancient through a contemporary prism and their own thinking. The items are relevant, thought-provoking and call for action.

We hope that you will find this short anthology enriching and inspiring, together with the timeless traditions that you practise.

We wish you all a good and meaningful year: Shana Tova.

The editors: Dr Elan Ezrachi, Dr Shahar Burla, Michael Visontay and Uri Windt
