Greetings and Shalom!
As we approach the upcoming Jewish New Year 5782, I would encourage everyone to read this outstanding article by the late Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks. His essay, "How Rosh Hashanah Can Transform Our Lives" is one of many inspirational and motivational essays featured in his regular column "Covenant and Conversation."
Rabbi Sacks writes:
"The genius of Judaism was to take eternal truths and translate them into time, into lived experiences. Rosh Hashanah, the anniversary of the creation of humanity, invites us to live and feel the human condition in graphic ways."
This column contains some of the most important ideas in Jewish thought, in language expressed with compassion spoken directly to the reader. This is among the most meaningful articles I've read. Indeed, Rosh Hashanah is transformative as are the words conveying its beautiful message of renewal, forgiveness and hope.
Although it is written for the High Holidays, the wisdom that Rabbi Sacks shares in the eight eternal truths applies to everyone willing to listen to its significance, and is for all faiths and creeds.
To everyone, Shana Tovah!
