Torah Thought

As we begin each Jewish New Year, we start with ten days of self-reflection, known as the Aseret Yemai Teshuvah, the Ten Days of Repentance.  During this time, we look for ways we can return to the path that leads to our best selves.  We pray the words from the Book of Lamentations (5:21), "Hashivenu Hashem elechah v'nashuvah, chadesh yameinu kekedem" (Return us to you, O Eternal one, and we shall be returned, renew our days as of old). 
May this New Year be a sweet and healthy one and may our acts of returning be sincere and complete.
Shana tova and Gmar chatimah tovah!
