Rosh HaShanah Is a New Stage of the Path

288.1Rosh HaShanah is the beginning of a new period, and we need to try to renew all our forces and most importantly the ones that are aimed at our connection so that it will be worthy of becoming a new chapter, the beginning of a new time.

The entire work of a person is to rise above the egoistic reason in which we found ourselves as the result of the sin of Adam HaRishon, that is, because of the evil inclination, which is ruling within us. It is necessary to try by all means to remain in faith above reason, as much as possible, in order for all of us to be together as one man in one heart directed to the Creator.

We need to connect with each other, grasp the Creator and not let go of Him by our prayers, requests, appeals, and hopes until we feel that we are really together with Him and we are all as one man connected with the Creator. This will be called the beginning of the year, the beginning of renewal, Rosh HaShanah.

The sin of Adam allows a person to feel the distance separating him from the Creator, which means that it gives him the opportunity to take steps toward the Creator. A person is like a baby who is just learning to walk, and therefore, adults support him, help him take the first, small, uncertain steps so a person with the help of the group can move forward and take steps toward the Creator.

A person relies on the group, each time discovering that he is not able to do anything by himself and immediately falls as soon as he is left alone. Then he rises again, as it is written: “A thousand times the righteous will fall and rise again.” This is how a person learns to go to the Creator and get closer to Him with each step.

Faith is the light that allows a person to work in order to come closer to the Creator by becoming similar to Him.

The Rosh Hashanah holiday is a renewal that applies to all created beings that are entering a new period, with new conditions in their relationship with the Creator, and therefore they can mark a new stage of the path for themselves.
