It was great seeing you all on Rosh Hashanah. I have heard many positive comments about the new Mahzor, and for myself as both the leader of the service and as a praying Jew, I thought it was wonderful.
Instead of a message, I am attaching links to my and Rabbi Ohriner’s sermons as well as my father’s annual Rosh Hashanah blessings.
I hope that these intermediary days of the Ten Days of Repentance will be a time of reflection and growth for you.
And don’t forget to wear white on Yom Kippur. It’s a way to make the day unique, to add to its spirituality, and to express your desire for atonements, based on Isaiah 1:18: “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.”
G’mar chatimah tovah—may you be inscribed in the Book of Life for a good year!
