Incidentally, this was a very inspiring video. Thank g'd we have people around us who are moved to create such inspiration.

Beautiful

Beauty (Tifereth) is at the center of the tree of life and Hashem's love for us is what nourishes our inner beauty. He just wants us to talk with him about who we are and what we want to be!

(104) Helen, September 18, 2012 11:03 AM

Love comes first

Because of love to my dad Jacob I found connection to Hashem and the truth of my familybackground. I have understand that my dad loved me most from all his 7 children. How much more does my heavenly dad love me then? As the creator his love is so super that he has given me special precious moments like once this summer: I was lying on the grass and above me on the sky the form of the cloud was a perfectly shaped beautiful wing. He was like a shomer protecting me under his wing. This beautiful private moment was astonishing and later I cried what did he mean showing me such a sign of a protection? But now I got it-he purely just loves me and cares about me- lke my 25 years ago passed father- who didn`t raise me Jewish-even he saw my Jewish soul in trouble living under a false life as a christian. Fathers are sinners if they don`t tell their children about their true Jewish id. But I forgive him, he had his reasons which I now know and understand.

Yet another wonderful and much appreciated new facet of looking at Rosh Hashanna from the Marvelous men (& women) on the Aish staff. Thank you very much, and may you ALL be blessed with a: Shanna Tova U’M’too-kah! PS — Is there any way to get a picture of the little girl at 2:45 of the movie? She is “eat-her-up” CUTE!

This video nearly brought tears to my eyes, it was so heartfelt. Charlie Harary has this way to drive the message home that is impossible in any speech or lecture. That having been said, here's my question: if your relationship with God is unfortunately like that of the teenage son, what are some practical ways to repair it and go back to being the little child?

Anon, September 7, 2012 3:35 PM

Anonymous - Watch Charlie's lecture on torahanytime.com called Rosh Hashana: How to Get Into the Book of Life. He expounds on this topic very well. I think the key is just to deeply integrate the understanding of how MUCH Hashem loves you into your consciousness - and that He loves you for you as you are with all your faults and with everything; He loves you unconditionally. And once you understand that - in my perception at least - you'll realize that all the things we do aren't meaningless rituals from an over-expecting and cold ruler, they're ways that we get get closer to Someone who loves us so much, they're chances that we are lucky enough to have to reciprocate His amazing love for us. And that changes the whole picture. He loves each and every one of us more than we can ever understand. All He wants from us is to know that we love Him back, not hate Him back. How do we do that? By showing Him we're trying to give back to Him by doing good in the world and making Him proud. It's all about the give and give of love. He shows us He loves us by giving to us and being there for us, and we show Him our love by attempting to do the same. Attempting, because we are no means perfect. But the attempt is so crucial. How do we go back to being the little kid? In my understanding, it's simply in switching our attitude towards G-d and the commandments from that of the teenager to that of the little kid. If we really are able to view G-d like the little kid then we are one again.

elana, September 12, 2012 7:09 PM

tough one

Wow that is hard; I would say in baby small steps, first realize if you believe in a higher being than it only makes sense that He is good, therefore if that is true than He cares about each of us. And then if things happen then they are good or have messages for us. We need to unravel the messages; I compare it to the DNA molecules that contain millions of codes. If you know the code then you can understand the message. After a while you begin understanding these messages and learning from them. Small steps

Thank you so much for this very inspiring video. The analogy is so real and brings the point home so well. Thank you for inspiring us over and over again. It really is all for us. When we look around and take the time to see and feel G-d's love for us in the intricate way He made the world, each of us, and everything in each of our world's, we are filled with an awesome feeling of love and awe and a strong deep desire of wanting G-d in our lives, in our homes, and in our hearts. It is a different life! Real life!

Beautiful concept of G-d's Love

Presently I am studying, learning and teaching about G-d's love, this video is another wonderful way of understanding His love for us and teaches us how to respond to His love. We love Him because He first loved us.

I must say that your video really made the spiritual concepts of Elul and Rosh Hashana so clear. I have been trying to understand Elul for the longest time and your video has really clarified everything for me. Your video made me cry as well. I have to agree with David that this was really amazing. Such profound wisdom within such a simplistic analogy. The message truly cuts to the heart and speaks volumes about G-d's love for us. Thank you for taking the time to make this video.

(63) Renah, August 28, 2010 9:35 PM

Awesome - Thank you

This is/was very good. Thank you for the reminder. After seeing this remarkable, profound, video short, the thought occurred to me, that timing is irrelevant to truth. It seems to me, that I should have the same excitement and anticipation in preparation for Yom Kippur as I do for every Shabbat, when our Creator has chosen this time to be with us. It seems each of us goes through a "teenage" phase of rebellious ignorance where we don't realize the importance and value of the role our Creator plays in our lives. And fear and dread of the condemning gavel overshadows the loving relationship that is available to us. Shalom Charles Harary, again thank you. :)

I am not Jewish but I am telling you this is one of the most beautiful stories of Rosh Hashana I have ever heard in my 60 years! Thank you for sharing...

(61) mordi, August 26, 2010 7:05 PM

Fantastic !

As one listener commented : " You nailed it ". I always have to listen to fear of Hashem. I am not interested in fear. That is for the other two major religions to force. Awe is great. Love is great. You are getting me closer to attending Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. G-d is in the house ! We adults are His children, the way He sees us. G-0d is home ! Let's celebrate. This means to take Dicchuning seriously, and the accounting and tshuva seriously, but to know that G-d is there as we cast stones into the river, and feel excited by His omnipresence during Elul and Tishrei. Mazel Bruchas and Shana Tova to you and your family. You have just done a beautiful mitzvah. My part is no longer to think it over about attending services, but to make it to Shul. If G-d is in the house, i don't want to miss him.

(60) Carol, August 26, 2010 4:38 PM

Awesome

Your message truly hit home, it is one that most can relate to. Sometimes I am so busy preparing for the High Holy Days, along with hoping that I make it through Yom Kippur without getting faint, etc.I forget to just relax and receive the Love and personal connection that G-d is offering to me.

This is the second video I have seen with Charlie Harary, and I really like his messages. This one really hit home with me. I thank G-d twice a day for my blessings, but I have been thinking about the High Holy Days with some dread. His video changed all that for me. Thank you!!

(56) Steve, August 26, 2010 8:31 AM

WOW

You hit the nail right on the head! And I DO miss the way I used to be greeted when I came home. If Hashem feels the same way, we all really need to rethink our relationship with Him, express our love, and make Him feel welcome in our lives. Keep up the great work and Shana Tove

(51) Neal B. Finkelstein, August 26, 2010 12:59 AM

Beautiful perspective!

When I've come home from work, my children greet me like Dino greets Fred Flintstone. It IS the highlight of my day! Charlie put Rosh Hashanah in such beautiful perspecctive that I can relate to. When Rosh Hashanah comes in this year, I will be that child running to great my father. Aish has taught me that each phase of life teaches us how to be more like our Creator. Having children allows us to understand how to love unconditionally--which is how I relate to my own children. What a beautiful way to feel coming into Rosh Hashanah--being the child who's Father loves me unconditionally. Keep up the great work!

(50) Marie, August 26, 2010 12:58 AM

Wow!

Charlie, this was WONDERFUL!! Thank you for a timeless message that hits home ANY time of year!

(49) yael, August 26, 2010 12:35 AM

This was very inspiring. This is EXACTLY what Rosh Hashana is all about! The love that we should be feeling for Hakadosh Baruch Hu. Thank you for spreading the message! Shana Tova!

(48) unlisted, August 25, 2010 11:57 PM

Develop a personal relationship with G-d all year!

Great video! We don't have to wait for pre-Rosh Hashanah to have that personal relationship with Hashem. It's not just Christians whose religion preaches having a personal relationship with G-d! As commenter #1 indicated, we as Jews can practice "hisbodedut," having a personal conversation with Him, every day, to our benefit!

(47) EVA, August 25, 2010 11:13 PM

Thank you for this message. i think that for too long i was more worried that i needed to, worried for what happen and i cannot change, reading books that would only upset me. G-d is love and nothing else matters for me. wonderful video, thank you.

(45) Adina H., August 25, 2010 10:14 PM

Perfect Analogy--Thanks!

This is a perfect analogy. I'm a high school student who recently moved into a Jewish community for the first time. I know what it's like to get so caught up in the craziness of life that we forget what really inspired us to do these things in the first place and drag through them in an almost begrudging way. This is a touching reminder that Rosh Hashanah isn't just about apples and honey, but about reconnecting to our incredible Father while He's extra close during this time. Thanks--you're appreciated! : )

(43) Anonymous, August 25, 2010 9:37 PM

I watched the video again and heard somethings that I had missed, so I am glad that this is still available to see and hear. As I go through the conversion process it becomes more wonderful, lots of studying but Mincha has been more meaningful since I purchased the Siddurs for High Holy Days and Shabbat and for Weekdays. All the morning and evening Shema is with greater kavone with the Hebrew in the transliterated form. It helps me learn more and so do your videos. They make one think about different aspects, attitudes and perhaps misconceptions as you pointed out about love. With Hashem, isn't it always about love? Thanks again for the video.

ADD this to the Video

An absolutely wonderful and poinant message. However, i think the 'LOVE" message should have also been mentioned in context with ALL relationships that we have as the high holydays approach. Certainly the analogy of G-d as the father makes for a powerful message. It is also Necessary to be preparing and mending bridges in our personal relationships as the Days of Awe approach because ultimately that is the whole reason for the days. Ultimately the days are about how we try to better our lives not only through G-d, but also by relationships that we have now. thanks. je

(6) ruth housman, August 22, 2010 2:48 PM

the apples and the honey

This is beautiful, because YES, it's all about love. The only difference for me is that I don't feel Rosh Hashona is the only time God comes home. God is always at home, and being at home in one place or another, means being in a place where love is visibly palpable. Every day then could be Rosh Hashona. And yes, it is a special reminder, this holiday, also, of just this. God needs us as much as we need God. Perhaps one could say this entire, greater story is about just this. That knowledge. A father needs his children's love. Children need to know they are, beloved. We are constantly involved in this dynamic. Read the stories on Aish and imbibe this truth, about love. This story, all of our stories, is deeply about LOVE and what it means, to LOVE, to honor, to respect. We're all in this together. My rose of Sharon begins to put out its white buds. Rose of Sharon. Awe, how Biblical is all of this!

Absolutely Beautiful and simply brilliant! I must say that to me this is probably the most excellent video/message that Aish has put out to date! Way to go! Charlie Harary and Aish! Have a wonderful Rosh Hashanah and a healthy year for you and your family and klal Yisrael.

I realize that the High Holy Days are serious, but also what was stated in the video is very important. G-d Loves us and I am happy that the Days are here and they come every year. I love and fear G-d and that is absolutely true. He gives me what I need and I get to pass or fail His tests. This is a good thing.

A great video! Charlie Harary is brilliant, and hits the nail on the head every time. May Charlie and his family be inscribed for a great year.

beautiful vid God gives us so much blessings in life. And the challenges are too because they help us grow. There's a book called In forest fields by Rabbi Shalom Arush about personal prayer which is good to learn about. What you said about the rules being for our benefit is very true. The mitzvos nourish us and bring light
