The word Teshuvah is usually translated as repentance, but a better translation is "turn." As in, turn away from the negative, turn towards the positive. Turn the intentions of one's actions, one's thoughts, one's mindset.
This season began with the High Holy Days which are specifically designated for Teshuvah, when prayer and repentance are more emphasized than at any other time during the cyclical Jewish year. And so, it has been foremost in our minds.
But, the holy days that follow immediately after offer insights and assistance in continuing the process of Teshuvah. Sukkot reminds us of the mitzvah of hospitality, and Simchat Torah reminds us of the power of joy. Our teshuvah, our repentance, is inexorably tied to creating and supporting a loving community.
As the mindfulness of the holy days invigorates our souls, consider the abilities of tzedakah and acts of chesed as paving the way during this season of "turning."
