Rosh Hashanah Countdown, Teshuva Anytime

How many of you catch yourself saying something and wonder if it's really a nice or right thing to say? If so, does it happen more in Elul and the beginning of Tishrei than the rest of the year?

Think about it...

Be honest. Yes, like when we're wondering why we've been gaining weight we usually forget to consider/calculate the calories of all sorts of "small things" we "just tasted."

In actuality, Teshuva, Repentance is supposed to be a 24/7 job. How can we keep track of our sins if we reserve it for just a few weeks a year?

We should have a clean slate before dying, and we never know when that will be...

Gmar chatima tovah...

Midrash Rabah, Kohelet, chapter 7, paragraph 29:
Consider how to do teshuvah [repentance] to save yourself from Gehinom [Hell].

Midrash Rabah, Kohelet, chapter 7, paragraph 32:
The entire time that a person is alive, the Holy One Blessed Be He looks forward to his repentance, but when he dies his hope is lost.

Rabbi Nachman [of Breslov] was insistent that
any project of return must be grounded in Jewish Law.
