Tishrei:The Renewal of Man and Creation (September 12)
The Renewal of man and Creation is based on the verse, “In his Goodness He renews everyday, always, the Workings of Creation, ma’aseh Breishit.’” Just as Creation is new each day, so too a spark of that newness is entered into the heart and mind of Man. Rosh Hashana is the power of returning to the First Point in Time, at the Beginning of Creation, when all was new. We will learn about this Point and attempt through meditative prayer to attach ourselves to it, and receive the Renewal.
