It is ingenious how the letters of the Aleph and Bet and Tishrei (the dates when Rosh Hashanah occurs) is exactly equivalent to the letters in the Hebrew word for Genesis (Bereshit), which is the event of creation that we celebrate on the Jewish New Year.
Truly, this magical genius evident in the Torah can only be from one source and that is the one Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, Himself!
Let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a truly magical Rosh Hashanah and one that is filled G-d’s mercy and blessings for a happy, healthy, prosperous, and peaceful New Year!
I saw some of the letters that had been written on the home page as well as an archive with monthly letters going back to March 2013.
It was inspiring that people write and submit these letters of empathy, love, caring, and unity.
And that someone would advertise for these, collect and post them for abuse victims to find some solace in.
While of course, we gain strength through belief in G-d and a higher purpose in life, perhaps the real message of this letter writing project is that one major way for people to heal from the hurt caused by mean, misguided, or evil individuals is through the love and caring of good people.
While the hurt and abuse of the past can never be undone, the charity and giving of the here and now can provide hope for a better tomorrow. 😉
