It is that time of the year when we look inward; reflect on the year we had and we make decisions for how we want to move forward as better people. We don’t set off firecrackers and get drunk. This is a reflective new year – a time of taking stock of who we are and how we live and it is an opportunity to make changes without recrimination. I am praying for the world to gain some wisdom – to heal the wounds between people and between countries and religions. I pray for the earth to heal from all that we have done to it – and I am praying for the world to break out in peace. But more than prayer, I ask you to join me in making the world a better place – doing tikkun olom. Shana tovah!
