Rosh Hashanah provides an opportunity to put God at the center and to renew our allegiance to what truly matters. Yom Kippur asks us to self-reflect and to repent of the ways we have fallen short of God’s best expectations yet again, so that we can aim high and do better. In that process, it also asks that we forgive those who have wronged or slighted us.
