Good Tidings on Your 10-Day "Return Trip" for 5775

You start off the new Jewish year with a 10-day “return trip”, cleaning out your head for the first 10 days of the year; A laundry job on the mind. And what are we if not our minds?

In lieu of fireworks and martinis to greet the new year, we Jews recalibrate our spiritual gauges, recharge our transcendent mindset that will guide us all year long; For the first 10 days of the year we resolve to stay close to Hashem and His Torah whenever we can.

This is why from Tishrei 1 through 10 we recite King David’s Psalm 130, “A Song of Heights”. By invoking this prayer, we call out, and thereby draw down, by force of personal contemplation, from an inner depth that reaches and touches another profundity, the supernal wish, for which He reciprocates with disproportionate revelation.


Wishing every Jew a fabulously redemptive New Jewish Year!
