Doomsayers

     Why is it that whenever something different happens, so many people cry out, “Watch out! Hell is coming!”? Now it is with Rosh Hashanah. “Oy! Oy! Here comes judgment! You’d better turn from your evil ways!”

     Why can’t they point to the wonderful, exciting opportunity that Rosh Hashanah brings?

    The New Year is a time for putting on new clothing, that is, our new deeds. It is a gorgeous opportunity to stand before the actual King of the Universe, and to tell Him our plans for the coming year. We get to hear the sound of the shofar, which reminds our souls of what we heard when the Torah was given on Mt. Sinai, and what it will sound like when the dead are brought back to life. It is a time when the King allocates our annual physical and spiritual portions....

     Wow! I am really looking forward to it.
