PostSubject: Our own Rosh HaShana Blessings   Wed Sep 04, 2013 6:08 am

It genuinely and truly is one of the greatest things that we can do is to give blessings...copious blessings...for Rosh HaShana, for the New Year. Accordingly, I want to begin by giving my blessings, and please God we'll all give our own blessings.

I bless everyone and you bless me back and together we'll bless all Israel for a Shana Tovah u'M'tukah – for a a good and a sweet year, for a New Year filled with the sweetest of the sweetest of the sweetest sweetness. If you remember, hopefully last year we also blessed each other for a very, very sweet year.

What this means for us now is that today, the last day of the year, is when we have to look back over the entire year and taste the sweetness that was, and wouldn't it be wonderful if we could taste the sweetness of the entire year. Still, naturally we're going to taste the sweetness of what was given to us, but there is also the sweetness of the things that 'we made sweet', things that started to or could have been otherwise but which we sweetened and made them blessings.

Besides the sweet taste, why is this important?

It's with this taste...the taste of sweetness, the sweetness of the blessings that were given to us, and the taste of the sweetest of the sweetness, the blessings we gave ourselves and others by making things sweet...it's with all this sweetness filling our mouths is how we'll pray on Rosh HaShana...sending the highest and deepest and sweetest prayers Heavenward for the well-being of all Am Yisrael and for the entirety of Creation.

Shana Tova u'M'tukah and Shabbat Shalom,
Daniel Eliezer
