Say good-bye to everything you've ever known, and step into a new dimension: the coming year of 5773, may it bring great blessing. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Richman prepare to receive the new light in this Rosh HaShana special edition of Temple Talk. First up: the special day of Elul 25, the first day of creation. How should we be spending that day? And why do we observe man's birthday, Rosh HaShana, with the call of the shofar? It all goes back to the secret of the sound of the shofar and the breath of life. Man was the last thing to be created...way after the animals. We're not animals, you know...that's what Rosh HaShana is all about. But way back in 1965, Eric Burdon and The Animals had a hit with "I'm Just a Soul Whose Intentions are Good; O L-rd, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood."
That's the secret of the sound of the shofar! I'm just a soul whose intentions are good! Hashem, please don't let me be misunderstood!Tune into Temple Talk for a Rosh HaShana primer that will change your life and get you ready for the upcoming High Holy Days.
WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: NITZAVIM/ROSH HASHANA GREETING 5773: 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. http://youtu.be/OD06rKRaEas
