Last year on Aug. 21, Teshuvah, the 40-day Jewish season of repentance, began with the great American eclipse. You can receive a free download of our book about this sign in the heavens, Teshuvah Eclipses.
Teshuvah is a compound word consisting of the Hebrew Tashan, meaning “return,” and hey, the last letter of the JHVH name for God. The hey in JHVH represents the Shekinah, or manifest presence of God. Thus, Teshuvah is a time to return to the presence of God. It is also understood that returning to God is accompanied by repentance.
