After a brutal summer, the first and crisp signs of Autumn have FINALLY appeared! The leaves have begun to change, the air is cooler, and the high holy days are here. Yom T'Ruah (or the Day of Sounding) has just passed and it was wonderful. It's so amazing to celebrate the feasts of the L-RD because it's not just some fun recreational thing that we do; it's a time that G-D Himself appointed for us to be near to Him. When the Shofar sounds, it's like a wake up call for us to get over ourselves and start focusing on the L-RD. It's kind of like, when you set an alarm and you keep hitting the snooze button and then someone either gets you up or you're late! G-D sets an alarm for us, to remind us to wake up, but we just keep hitting the snooze button because we know that once we get up, we can't go back to sleep. G-D, however, loves us so much that he keeps sounding the alarm, and if He has to, yanks off the covers, because he doesn't want us to be late for His party :) What a sweet and loving G-D we have!
Well, that's all for now. Have a good weekend!
