Rosh Hashanah Guide for the Perplexed 2016

29 Elul 5776 – October 1, 2016
On Rosh Hashanah, one is expected to plan a spiritual and behavioral road map for the entire year. So when one hears the shofar blow,the trip begins

In every generation, the shofar blow is not like other sounds. Those sounds we listen to with our ears, but to the shofar we listen with our souls. ALL Jews always thirst for this cry of longing.

Shabbos Mevorchim Tishrei

28 Elul 5776 – September 30, 2016
Rosh Hashanah on the first of Tishrei comes to assure us that we needn’t despair, for Hashem, our Heavenly Father, is eager to accept our teshuvah and wipe our slate clean.

Festive Or Somber?

Looking from mother to father I would wonder: Is Rosh Hashanah a happy day or a sad day?
