This is it. The last Shabbat of the year. Unlike the secular world, we don't wind down the year with parties and vacations. We certainly do not begin the year this way either.
"Atem Nitzavim..." You are all standing here today. We stand together as proud Jews who all anxiously prepare for the Yom Hadin with seriousness and trepidation. We have one last Shabbat together to collect our thoughts and properly enter into the Days of Awe.
Shabbat Shalom and Ketivah V'Chatimah Tovah
