Hashem created all human beings and it should sadden us when Hashem, their Father, does not see nachas from them.
When Hashem formed man, He gave him the keys to Creation. As the Midrash tells us, Hashem said to Adam, “This is your world now. You are in charge of it; take care that you don’t destroy it.”
Realizing that his death was immanent and he had only a few more moments, Moshe focuses on doing the most important thing: he runs to Bnei Yisrael and blesses them.
The Sukka: Even if you find it difficult to come to the synagogue, the synagogue will come to you.

The Jewish world today is a critical part of the timeline in Jewish history.
Often in life we become stuck – stuck in the morass of our habits and the rote of our comfort level.
There is one day of the year on which the Satan has no power: Yom Kippur.
During shmittah we refrain from agricultural activities and collection of loans, and on Yom Kippur we refrain from all physical pleasures.
What right do I, sinner, have to approach Hashem and request forgiveness?
Imagine a man who, after having a few too many drinks, gets into his car and begins driving. It takes a while before he is pulled over, but finally the police arrest him, and he stands trial for driving while intoxicated.
Others suggest that one cannot separate Shabbos from Yom Kippur by accepting Shabbos early.
Ba’al Shem Tov: “Hashem, too, is crying; as much as He is looking for us, we rarely look for Him.”

On Rosh Hashanah we are taught that true self-analysis involves the breaking down of walls
When we hear the words "Rosh Hashana is coming" it really means Hashem Himself is coming!

While women are exempt from actually learning Torah, they are obligated in a different aspect of the mitzvah.
Once we recognize that our separation from God is our fault, how do we repair it?
