10Q: Reflect, React, Renew for Rosh Hashanah

A question a day for the Days of Awe.

When is Rosh Hashanah 2017? Click here to find out.

10Q is a national project that asks people to answer a question a day online for 10 days during the High Holidays. It offers a new way for Jews and people of all backgrounds to slow down and reflect. Answers are emailed to a secure online vault just after Yom Kippur. Next year, just before Rosh Hashanah starts, answers are sent back to participants, and the whole process begins again.
