Sacred Seasons

September 20, 2015
In 2015, the period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur almost precisely overlapped with the period of the Hajj. Eid al-Adha, the culmination of the Hajj, was the day after Yom Kippur. This public program explored many of the shared themes of the season, including repentance, pilgrimage, and sacrifice.
