What’s Your Sin? Removing the Number One Stumbling Block in Your Life

Can you recall any time you hurt someone, perhaps a friend, neighbor, family member, fellow congregant or business associate?
Your Sin

Neglecting Torah study. Our souls draw strength from Torah study. When we learn Torah regularly, we provide daily nourishment for our souls.

Action steps: Study Jewish law so you know how to observe the Torah. In addition, learn something that inspires you. Uplifting articles and books, or listening to inspirational teachers, will fire up your passion for Judaism and increase your fervor to come closer to God.

By repairing the area with which you struggle most, you will deepen your relationship with God. Come Rosh Hashanah, when we coronate God as King of the world, you will not be sitting in the bleachers; you will be up front, a beloved, close family member of the King.
