 When The Prayer of One Has the Power of Ten
"Search for Hashem when He is close. Call Him when He is near." (a pasuk [line] from Yeshiyahu [Isaiah]). The Gemara explains that this refers to the 10 days "between" Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. This class examines the Ten Days of Teshuvah in depth drawing on sources in Navi, Gemara, Shulchan Aruch, Tanya and more. Intermediate Level Material but all Hebrew and Yiddish is translated clearly into English.

"I am Pouring Out My Soul Before G-d"
The Rambam calls the period between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur the "time of teshuvah". During this period, Jews are inspired without premeditation. A person driving in the car or jogging in the park can be so overcome by a feeling of emptiness and distance from Hashem (G-d) that he or she breaks down and cries from the pain. The Lubavitcher Rebbe encourages us to use this time with intention. We should not just let teshuvah happen. When a Jew does teshuvah during the days leading up to Yom Kippur, he or she feels a power from the inner yechidah - as the inner source of the individual draws closer to the Source on High. Note: The word teshuva in Hebrew means return and refers to a "return" to Hashem. Accessible to everyone.
