Tapping Into Our Meritorious Past

(L-R) The Rambam, The Chofetz Chaim, Rashi.



By asking Hashem to grant us clemency in the merit of our forefathers, we are not asking Him to “play favorites.” Rather, we are imploring Him to look deep within us and see us not only for our past misdeeds but also for our future successes. We hope He chooses to focus on the latent potential that lies imprinted within each of us and grant us the judgment that will allow us to convert our great potential into reality.

As we approach Rosh Hashanah, let us aspire to give Hashem every opportunity to see us as true descendants – spiritual as well as physical – of the avos and thereby achieve the type of favorable judgment we all desire.
