Words that Conquer the Heart: Meditation for the Fast of Gedaliah

The day after Rosh Hashanah is a public fast day commemorating the assassination of Gedaliah ben Achikam, who was governor of the Land of Israel for a short period following the destruction of the First Temple. This day is also an especially propitious time for returning to G-d in teshuvah.
