Shalom, Shalom. I would like to take this time to wish everyone “Le-shana tova tikatevu.” This statement is the traditional IVRI transliteration that is interpreted, “May you be inscribed for a good year.” No doubt this is an encouragement to perform the necessary steps during this season to commence the UNFOLDMENT of a good year.
The Jewish traditions that are performed this time of year were inspired by the SAGES to create an IMPETUS within to correct the qualities in the THOUGHT LIFE OF THE JEW. The correction is one in which the desires of the WORLD are to be transformed into the DESIRE TO BE ONE with ECHAD. This process of CORRECTION is not to be engage with only during this TIME of the YEAR, but rather it is to be ACTUALIZED as a LIFESTYLE for BENEI YISRAEL.
As Jews, we are to provide an ensample to those who are undergoing the HUMAN CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE on how to maximize the SUPERNAL POTENTIAL. The traditions that our SAGES were inspired to both DEMONSTRATE and TEACH are what is necessary for the INTEGRAL EDUCATION. In other words, this time of the year is destined to have a UNIVERSAL EFFECT on making the WORLD A BETTER PLACE. May your name be inscribed to have this effect upon the year 5778. SHANAH TOVAH
