So too, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur teach us all to look back over the year and with the distance of time, recognize what God has done for us.

By Rabbi Avi Weiss As the Jews prepare to enter Israel after 40 years of desert migration, Moshe (Moses) reminds them of the miracles they have seen. He then proclaims "But the Lord has not given you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear until this day." (Deuteronomy 29:3) What is the meaning of until this day? Can it be that prior to that moment, the Jews did not believe?
Rashi quotes the classic Midrash that on that day, Moshe gave the actual scroll of the Torah to the Levites. The rest of the Jewish people felt excluded and protested. Impressed by their love of the Torah, Moshe proclaims that it was on that day that the Jews showed how deeply they believe.
Other thoughts come to mind related to the upcoming High Holidays.
Perhaps only after living through the miracles of the Egyptian exodus and the desert wanderings, could the Jewish people finally look back and recognize the magnitude of what they had experienced. It often occurs that one can only appreciate a miraculous moment long after it happens. So too, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur teach us all to look back over the year and with the distance of time, recognize what God has done for us.

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur teach us that we are born to be creators who are to remake and reform ourselves and our world. We are to re-make what we have fashioned in the world
September 2002
RABBIS REFLECTION The Birthday of the World Rosh Hashanah has many names the Jewish New Year, the Day of Remembrance and the Day of the Sounding of the Shofar. In addition the first of the High Holidays is also known as Hayom Harat Olam the Birthday of the Universe. With exquisite insight the sages of our people understood that at Rosh Hashanah we are to be reminded of the connection between the creation of the world and the creation of humanity, between the creativity of the Almighty and the creative potential of every human being, and between the beginning of the physical universe and the sequential commencement of new chapters in our own lives. As Jews we boldly affirm that God creates and shapes the physical universe and proclaims that there is a moral order inherent in His creation. Just as the Torah speaks of God the Creator, so does our tradition boldly proclaim that men and women are also to shape the world and that the Lord also endows us with the capacity to shape our own lives in accordance with moral principles. Thus it is that we are able to make our lives better by making them more meaningful, by filling them with concern for others and by creatively improving our own lives and the world around us. Through such changes we are able to grow and drawn closer to the Lord. Thinking of the start of the physical world as we celebrate the beginning of another year in the Jewish calendar, we should be thinking about the next chapters of our lives. For some this is a period filled with anxiety as new jobs begin or we start new programs of study. For some this may be a time of moving to new neighborhoods or traveling far from home. Some will be approaching marriage or other life cycle events and find themselves uneasy because of what they face. But as we come to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur we look forward acknowledging and accepting our concerns and worries , but confident with faith and with hope, knowing that challenges confronted will ultimately bring us the joy.

4. Democratization Is It For Real?
For Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur teach that the world coheres because God judges, even if we don't fully unders tand the judgement; that God notices, even if we don't realize it

5. Kol Nidre Sermon
If the holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur teach us one thing, that thing is that our actions in life matter. What we do makes a difference.
Rabbi's Corner Kol Nidre Sermon
Kol Nidre: October 8. 2008/5769
Rabbi Jeffrey Summit Echoes of the Maggid . In Jewish life in Eastern Europe, a maggid Ha-Tsur tamim po'olo , The Rock, His work is perfect. The audience knows the verse and shares the belief in God's perfection. Why, then, does a perfect God make a learning-disabled child? They hear the father's anguish and are silent. Now, it is the right of every Jew to question, even to question God's actions. Abraham questions, Job questions, you and I question. The father, however, has not come to question or complain about defective merchandise. Let me tell you what he goes on to say, and then I want to discuss the implications of this story. "I believe," says the father, "that when God brings a child like this into the world, the perfection that He seeks is in the way people react to this child." And then comes a story within a story. Shaya attends the special school Monday through Friday and a regular yeshiva on Sunday. One Sunday afternoon, when Shaya and his father arrive at the yeshiva, the kids are playing softball. The boy looks up at his father and says, "Do you think you could get me into the game?" This is a child who is not athletic, who is even awkward. He knows what it means to be rejected. He knows how it feels to be the last one picked when the kids choose up sides. He knows the humiliation of being unwanted by either team. His father knows all this as well, has felt his son's pain all along the way. "Do you think you could get me into the game?"
