Shabbat Shuva / שַׁבָּת שׁוּבָה

Shabbat that falls between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (Shabbat of Returning) 🕍

Shabbat Shuva for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on and ends at nightfall on . This corresponds to Parashat Ha'Azinu.

Shabbat Shuvah (“Sabbath [of] Return” שבת שובה) refers to the Shabbat that occurs during the Ten Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Only one Shabbat can occur between these dates. This Shabbat is named after the first word of the Haftarah (Hosea 14:2-10) and literally means “Return!” It is perhaps a play on, but not to be confused with, the word Teshuvah (the word for repentance).
