Just tonight I was talking to Risa at T'fillat Chana at Tel Shiloh about how I've been looking forward to a certain aspect of the upcoming "3 day yontiff," when two days of Rosh Hashannah is immediately followed by Shabbat making it three days of Jewish Holiday Plus. I like the idea of no news, telephones, computer, internet, cell phone etc. I enjoy Shabbat and Jewish Holidays when all the technology is off. My husband and I don't use the internet option on our phones. We don't carry around a computer either.
Considering the predictably awful news coming out of the United Nations in New York about a Pseudostinian aka Palestinian sic State that wants to take our Land and lives and the dangerous reverberations expected here, a break from news to pray to G-d is certainly a good idea.
At the T'fillat Chana Rabanit Yemima Mizrachi, tonight at Tel Shiloh, spoke and reminded us that on Rosh Hashannah our prayers aren't supposed to be personal prayers. We are to pray for the entire Jewish People. That is exactly what is needed at this time.
Our People and Land are in terrible danger. We must all turn off all of the distracting technology and focus our energies on prayers for our Redemption.
I was about to write to "bring the Moshiach," but I don't think that would help. That's because I have a feeling that the Moshiach has been here a few times, ready to save us, but we as a people have ignored him or sent him packing. We must pray for the Jewish Nation/People to reach the level to accept the Moshiach!
