Rosh Hashanah

October 3, 2011

The Jewish people just finished celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. It commemorates not the first day, but the creation of mankind, Adam (and Eve) on the sixth day. One might ask, why was Adam created alone rather than one of many. Adam was created with a purpose and he knew it. Being only one, he alone could accomplish his purpose. All depended on him. If we think of ourselves as an Adam, then we realize that our purpose is ours alone and all depends on each of us. We can’t expect someone else to do it for us. Sing along “Only you can make this world seem right / Only you can make the darkness bright / Only you and you alone!” The Platters

 “To be or not to be is not a question of compromise. Either you be or you don’t be.” – Golda Meir
