“Is there any real reason to make resolutions specifically for the new year?… Yes!
We are all in a relationship with time… [But] time didn’t always exist… The Creator decided to build the universe and created time and space as a framework in which the universe would exist…
G-d creates time in one-year installments, and every year at the onset of Rosh Hashana…time itself comes to an end, and a new year’s worth of time is created. During Rosh Hashana, all the time of the year ahead is formed, and the nature and potential of the entire year ahead are determined.
…A clean, fresh framework that hasn’t been tainted by anything in the past, making it the perfect time for each of us to make that new start in our lives.”
