Cry of a child is the call of the shofar Again-a very meaningful message. I am going to play a select few before the chag begins tomorrow night, on several lap tops. Reply

The cry of a child, liken to shofar blowing is our raw guttural cry to our Father in Heaven, maybe it is a call that all the moments of this day be enjoyed with our Maker and Keeper, blessed be Him. Could it be, As the 7 day was the first day of Adam life, so the 7th month is the first month of a new year for us. Reply

A NEW Years resolution Hello, it might sound blasphemus or irrelevent. Would it be possible for all that believe in our g-d of Abraham, that when we think of g-d, it is not a He, Him or Father?

Perhaps the less we think of our g-d in a human manner, the more we will know of the enormity, importance and seriousness of our belief and trust.

Just a thought. May your New Year bring you the contentment of life an improvement of all things that you wish. Take care, Reply
