Inner Exploration for Atonement—Not Just for Jews

"As we approach the Jewish High Holy Days (they begin the evening of September 29), I suggest that we use this time to look in our minds and hearts for the means of atonement, not just with the Creator, but with each other. The ideas that I will discuss may have a Jewish basis, but they can serve all people regardless of faith traditions. The power is within the individual if we but know how to access it."
As he neared retirement from a federal career, Stan Levin studied and was ordained a rabbi. He served the Jewish congregations at Riderwood Retirement Community in Silver Spring and Hevrat Shalom Congregation in Rockville until his retirement this year. He continues to lecture on films, including at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Rockville.
