The Rabbis teach us that in the Torah portion that is closest to a holiday you can find references to the upcoming holiday.
In this workshop, we will discuss our feelings about teshuvah, look at excerpts from our holy books, read "teshuvah poems" and then write our own poetry in a safe environment.
