The High Holy Days season comes upon us each year and beckons us to return home to our best selves, community, and the sacred. Engaging in the process of return promises nothing less than transformation.

Because even when the themes are familiar, we are different and we see with new eyes. Return: 30 Days of Reflection is your personal guide to the soul- work of this season. It contains daily questions for journaling and discussion.

Your soul-preparation workbook for this High Holy Days season.

By Rabbi Jill Zimmerman

Yes, I want the workbook!


Teshuvah (Hebrew for "return") is the primary cosmic energy of this season. We direct our hearts back to center.

This personal work is so important that we set aside an entire month (Elul ) for reflection.

We take stock of who we are, where we are, and who we want to be. We look back over the past year and set new intentions for the coming year.

Taking the time to reflect on the past year makes the High Holy Days season exponentially more meaningful.

If you used Return last year, we've updated many of the questions, and as a whole year has gone by, it is a meaningful endeavor to see how your responses have changed.

What Does Return/Teshuvah
Mean This Year?

Our lives have been profoundly disrupted by the pandemic. While it would be understandable to just "move on" - I strongly encourage you to take this High Holy Days season to do a soul-accounting, which Return helps you do.

What have you learned about yourself? What life changes do you want to make? Who has made a difference for you this past year? What impact do you want to make moving forward?


From Rabbi Jill

Your free workbook is divided into four weeks with explanations of the season's themes. There is a question for each day. You can print it out & use it as a journal, or discuss your responses with a small group.

Return is part of Path With Heart's offerings for this High Holy Day season. We are also hosting a free workshop and a three-week course on Spiritual Preparation for the High Holy Days to go deeper.

In September, join us for mindful, contemplative High Holy Days gatherings for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, with special guests including Cantorial Soloist Ter Lieberstein. Check for emails from Path with Heart for the links to join these special gatherings.
