The Jewish new year – Rosh Hashana (lit. head of the year) is next week.
Since the beginning of Elul (the Jewish month that precedes Rosh Hashanah) I’ve had time or should have taken time to do my soul searching. I would have better used my time had I perhaps thought about the iniquities I committed this past year. I should have been thinking about how I could better myself and my deeds. Unfortunately I didn’t. I got caught up in the dailies.
And next week is Rosh Hashanah and the week after that Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement. I will stand before Him, Judge of all living beings and ask that He forgive my wrongdoings and that in His mercy I and my family should be written in the Book of Life.
