Rosh Hashanah Thoughts from Above

A view of the Andes

On Rosh Hashanah we forge anew our intrinsic bond with G-d. Though our divine service may often be based on various human concepts -love, awe, rational understanding- the true commitment that forms the basis of an ever lasting relationship is one based on something much deeper. When we blow the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah we remind ourselves, and the Creator Himself as it were, of the time when we entered in an eternal covenant by mount Sinai. Just as the Shofar blew then, so to its cry sounds out now like a child to his father,
"Abba Abba -take me back to you!"

And just as no earthly father can bear to leave his child's cries unanswered, so to our Father in Heaven answers our calls.
