The way Rosh Hashana is presented made a serious impact on me.

Good day, I have been going though some serious mental health issues, including that I feel I have failed in being a meaning person on this earth. I always believed that the New Year day meant spending time reflecting on my past. II still want to make a difference in this world, although at age 66(no male in my family has lived beyond 81) I fear running out of time to accomplish some of the things I had hopes of doing 30 years ago. The collective statements in this video tell me that I have been llooking at the meaning in the wrong way, that of spending time on the past. I have done this much of my life even when it is not Rosh Hashshana is not happening. I hope that viewing this video will enable me to look at my life in a more positive way. I will share this with my mental health doctors. Thank yoy.

What an awesome site!

Hello. This is a great site! So glad to find it. As a Christian and not real familiar with Jewish holidays and customs, I've learned a lot to night. I will continue to come back for more on Jewish holidays, customs and feasts! I really enjoyed the music videos too! ? Blessings, Debra Sepeda Debrasepeda777@gmail.com

analogy for starting anew

I thought of an analogy for starting anew and not being constrained by the past. It is like a disorganized person with a messy closet. On RH they can decide they won't be a disorganized anymore but after the holiday they still have to deal with the messy closet. They don't have to be constrained by their past, but they still may have to deal with it.

Nice Thought!

Which brings us to Yom Kippur...the day we clean out that closet.
