Parashat Nitzavim-Vayelech/Rosh HaShana Greeting

In this week’s parasha the children of Israel are about to enter into a covenant with Hashem, and we are today about to enter into the new year of 5775. The same challenge that stood before Israel as she stood poised to enter the land, stands before us today. We must stand strong in the face of the evil and death that encompasses us all around, and be poised and ready to take a stand and to act for good and life and blessing in the world. Building the Holy Temple, a source of light and blessing and a bulwark against the curse of darkness is this generation’s challenge and responsibility. We must stand together as one and build! Shana Tova!
