How have Jewish mystics understood the meaning and practice of teshuvah? As we prepare for the upcoming High Holy Days, we will reflect on texts and ideas that illuminate the ways in which kabbalists and hasidic preachers have offered insight into the ways in which we may grow and repair through moral self-reflection; how we may cultivate a spiritual life in which the light of God and the sacred shines through the face of the other person and broader community that we are called to love in compassion and empathy; how we may learn to see the world with a wider and refreshed spiritual awareness and presence of mind.
