G'mar Chatimah Tovah!

From The Wisdom of The Lubavitcher Rebbe

Words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman.

The shofar is a cry not of a human being, but of an animal's horn.

From a place so essential and unbounded, so raw and primal,

that the mind ceases to ponder, the heart stands still.

From the raw essence of man a cry rips aside heaven's curtains

to reveal the raw essence of his Maker.

Happy New Year 5770 ! שנה טובה ומתוקה

From The Wisdom of The Lubavitcher Rebbe
words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman
The universe has a soul.
All that exists in the soul exists in space and in time.
In the cosmic soul there is a mind, a consciousness from which all conscious life extends.
In space, there is the Land of Israel, a space from where all space is nurtured.
In time, there is Rosh Hashana, a time from which all time is renewed.
Rosh Hashana, meaning Head of the Year. Not just a starting point, but a head.
For whatever will transpire in the coming year is first conceived in these two days.

The Month Elul

The King's
In the field today!
What good news!
I'll wear my best dress,
And put on my new white shoes.
I'll rush out to greet Him -
Try to be the first -
I've got something
Important to tell Him -
I'm so happy I could burst!
I'll tell Him
Not to go back to the Palace
Like He used to do -
I'll tell Him He has to stay with us,
'Cause He's our One and Only King,
And we're His one and only retinue!
