Shana Tova to all friends and followers.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
Words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman.

There are things that are important to us, so we speak about them.
There are things so important to us that the words flow out in a burst of emotion, rich words, expressive and vibrant.

Things that do not care for the mind's permission or for the right words—
for the mind cannot fathom them, the most poignant words could not contain them. Things that can only break out in a cry, in a scream, and then in silence.
This is the sound of the shofar:
The very core of our souls crying, "Father! Father!"
