The Sabbath between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur is called Shabbat Shuvah, Shabbat of Return because its special haftarah reading begins with the words Shuvah Yisrael "Return O Israel", from the prophecy of Hoshea. It is also referred to as Shabbat Shuvah because it falls during the Ten Days of Repentance (also known as Ten Days of Awe).
This Shabbat was given to Israel as a time for Torah study and prayer, and, although one should always take care not to pass the time idly, unholy or in inappropriate conversation, on Shabbat Shuvah one should be especially careful to focus entirely on Torah, prayer, and reflection on repentance, thereby attaining forgiveness for whatever unfitting behaviour may have marred other Sabbaths.
In this study, we will discuss seven (7) topics starting with Shabbat and the acronym of the Shuvah (return) that would complete a Sabbath call to return - a message on shabbat shuvah.
