Judaism: Temple Institute on the New Year
Rabbi Chaim RichmanRabbi Chaim Richman is the Director of the International Department of The Temple Institute in Jerusalem.
The final Torah reading of the year relates the final words of Moshe to Israel on the final day of his life on earth.
His words speak of spiritual beginnings, potential , and national destiny. "You are all standing here today..." resilient, renewed and ready to pass through into the new year and into the fulfillment of your covenant with G-d.
May we all be blessed with light and harmony, peace and sweetness in the new year.
