The Makor Or Annual High Holidays Intensive:The High Holidays mark the most intense period of the Jewish sacred year.  Beginning with the month of Elul, we spend 5 weeks in preparation, prayer, meditation, reflection, and repentance (teshuvah, return) as we re-tune ourselves to our spiritual lives, pausing from our task-oriented activities to take stock of and rededicate ourselves. 

The Intensive offers us a format for our practice.  It offers us guidance and community.  It consists of five meetings, daily practice, and reflection between meetings, weekly contact with a chevruta partner, and a private interview with our teacher, Norman Fischer.  The weekly meetings include meditation, instruction, and discussion.
