Rosh Hashana is the day of judgment for all humankind. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve—in other words, the birthday of everyone’s great, great, great (and so on), grandparents. It is a day of awe and fear and also a day of celebration.
Rosh Hashana is also a day of great self-awareness. It is a time to recognize who we are as individuals, as members of a community and the Jewish people, and as members of humanity. It is a day to invest fully in becoming aware of our relationship with God.
Pretty heady stuff for us mere mortals. But we know that God doesn’t give us anything impossible to do. So, how do we “get there?”
