The Yamim Noraim are bound up with remembering. We revisit past actions in order to adjust course in the year ahead. We remember people who have died, grounding ourselves in our losses. And for many, remembering itself is the challenge. We will explore the centrality of remembering and the ways in which attending to memory loss—whether spiritual, metaphorical or cognitive—enriches our understanding of remembering in the experience of the Yamim Noraim.
