Rabbi Eric Woodward
Bet El-Keser Israel (BEKI)
We’re told by Rabbi Pinkhas of Koretz that every day, we should look ourselves in the mirror and ask: Heyhan ani Be’Olami? Where am I in my own world?
The past year-and-a-half of pandemic has brought all of us trauma, stress, and fear.
But we also have grown and changed, and experienced love and joy.
Who are you as you enter into 5782? What has your world been? How have you changed and grown? Asking these questions is the beginning of the Teshuva—the soul growth-work—that we have to do during the High Holidays. Where are you in your world?
