Tonight marks the first day of the Jewish calendar year. It also marks the beginning of a ten day period set aside for us to see the world through the lens of spiritual renewal and personal growth. It is a time for honesty and vulnerability, a time for introspection and reflection, a time for rectification and healing.
This spiritual season presents us with an opportunity to evaluate ourselves during this challenging chapter in the story of our lives. May our worship together and our celebrations with family and friends be a spiritual prelude for a process of renewal and blessings as the year 5778 begins to unfold.
