We each have spectacular inner resources waiting to be tapped. The Shofar is G-d's wake up call, His way of asking us, “How have you used the life I’ve given you? What have you done with your abilities? Will you now develop them more fully, to make a difference, to be a blessing to the world, and especially to the people in your life?”
In Living a Life that Matters, we turn our attention to the consideration of who we were meant to be, but have not yet become. Along the way we will meet with Jeremiah of old as well as a 20th century sage whose life course was changed by the late-night tears of his parents; we will peek in on Michelangelo and his critique of Raphael; we will see how a seemingly arcane Shofar law holds the key to attaining authenticity; and we will learn of the profound Jewishness of a KGB agent and how is pinteleh Yid, his subconscience was revealed.
Rosh Hashanah gives us a new chance to release the power of holiness, of kedushah, that is always right there within us, to recreate ourselves, to let the Divine within us emerge to new life, new heights, and new hope for ourselves, for our families, and for the world.
