These Ten Days [between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur] are a special time when each individual is given the potential to restore the light of these Sefirot into their souls.
By addressing each particular Sefirah, studying and understanding its quality, processing it and internalizing it into our lives in an actualized way, we can alter the fabric of our very soul.
The true work of these Ten Days has more to do with delving into our inner selves and disciplining our day-to-day behavior than conceptualizing or attempting to approach the sublime.
These Ten Days [are an] opportunity… because day by day we are gifted with a special infusion of energy from Above helping us to understand, address, and ultimately alter our lives.
“Rosh Hashana is the date of the creation of the first human beings. On that very first day…Adam and Chava committed the very first sin.
God judged them and forgave them. God said, ‘Just as you were judged before me on this day and emerged forgiven, so will your children be judged this day and emerge forgiven.’
Emor Project wishes you all a healthy new year filled with overflowing revealed blessings in all areas of ruchaniut and gashmiut (spirituality & physicality).
“Rosh Hashanah [is] the day when the first human was created …when small, frail, vulnerable and lowly human beings invite G-d to serve as their King.
But why does G-d need us to coronate Him?
“…The relationship between us and G-d is a partnership. Partners are accountable to each other. In the month of Elul, we do our accounting. Rosh Hashana is audit day. G-d checks the books to see how we took care of His investment in us.
“The Talmud teaches something very profound: When somebody repents out of awe, out of fear- their sins are absolved. When someone repents out of love, their sins become mitzvot.
“A helpful first step is to remember that nothing happens without God’s guidance. Our prayer services haven’t simply fallen victim to the blind menace of COVID-19. The High Holidays this year present us with an opportunity to reach new heights of meaning and connection.
