Rosh Hashanah is around the corner!
And if you’re anything like me?
You may still remember last Rosh Hashanah. Because I do.
I stood in Synagogue and told G-d, “I know You heard this last year.
How this year I’m going to be different. Going to be better.
And it’s going to be a new Moshe Katz!”
… Well it didn’t quiet work out as planned.
I’m still the same Moshe Katz!
But I’m going to speak to G-d again this Rosh Hashanah.
Going to ask Him to have one thing.
Because this year will really be different.
… Its something we should think about.
Do we have a right to ask G-d for patience?
On how we deal with other people.
Are we patient with them?
Then we can ask G-d to be patient with us.
But if we don’t have patience with other people?
If we’re always losing it. Flying off the handle?
We have a pretty weak case!
… I thought about this a few years ago. On the day before Rosh Hashanah.
I was waiting on line in the bakery for the special round challas.
The bakery was much more crowded than usual.
It was a hectic day. People had to go to work.
And the lines were long.
People started getting very edgy. Started losing it.
And I thought to myself.
… Those of you that I have never met?
You probably know what’s coming next!
I’ve told you how much I would love to meet you. I’ve tried everything.
From exciting programs to great food!
I haven’t lost my patience!
But how about a Mitzvah before Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur?
Make the holidays special and make a Rabbi happy!
