Shabbat Shuva 2020 / שַׁבָּת שׁוּבָה 5781

Shabbat Shuva (Shabbat that falls between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (Shabbat of Returning)) for Hebrew Year 5781 began on Friday, 25 September 2020 and ended on Saturday, 26 September 2020.

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).
