Rosh Hashana, The Jewish New Year is around the corner, and some books call it the birthday of the world. My daughter was not sure why it was called the birthday of the world, and I told her that before God created the world, there was nothing, and then the earth and people were born. My oldest son said the most profound words, “Hashem was bored.” In Hebrew, Jewish people refer to God as Hashem, and we learn that God wanted to experience how men and women go through life, uplift themselves, grow, and be a light onto our world.
The whole month before Rosh Hashana, it is the month of Elul, we look at how we behaved in the year before, and take on how we want to grow in the following year. It is so inspiring to read and listen to how everyone around me is looking forward to a fresh start, and wishing everyone happiness, health, success, and love.
I love the deeper meaning of the words on the page,
In the Torah, it is not just the words that are important,
To read in between the lines is so powerful,
Because each person understands it in their own unique way,
It applies to everyone diffrently,
We are all differrent,
Our journey and path is our own,
Embrace your journey,
Looking forward to a sweet new year,
