  1. Preparing Your Heart for the High Holy Days by Kerry Olitzky and Rachel Sabath…This one is my favorites…I have journaled it for several years.

    I found a new one…Renewal, Inspirational Lessons of Rosh Hashanah by Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld, Gefen Publishing House and available on Amazon. It just arrived today.
