Hitlamdut is the embodiment of humility, opening to the truth of what we don’t know for the purpose of connection with self, others, and God.  Embrace Hitlamdut as a vehicle for the transformative possibility of deeply immersing in High Holy Day rituals.  And, since “pachad” fear and curiosity can’t coexist, “…Perhaps acknowledging what we are afraid of will actually open ourselves up to the possibility of what we can become. Perhaps in sitting and reflecting on what is possible, we can shift that fear into a state of awe of what lies ahead and the power of the world around it. Perhaps yirah is the choice between seeing the possibility of who we are becoming in a state of fear that holds us back, or a state of awe that propels us forward.”  https://michiganhillel.org/tilly-shames-2019-5780/
 
Practice
•         Look inward, pause, reflect, ask ““What about this situation can I get curious about?” 
•         In seeking forgiveness and offering it during these Days of Awe, get interested in what every interaction can reveal to you about yourself, others, and the world.
