    Many highpoint moments during the passing year, for the good and the better.
    This year was a loaded and special one for sure!
    Either the 70th anniversary, Jerusalem building up, all the national projects, record breaking economy and tourism - there was something for everyone to get inspired.



    I want to thank all the friends of Israel and the Jewish people, all my tribesmen on this forum, all the people who have respected me in sharing their personal story, all those with good intentions and true hearts.
    Let us all be judged favorably for a sweet and peaceful year, full of calmness of spirit and joy from family and close ones.

    Rosh HaShana is a sweet celebration, we eat sweet and full, no bitter, no sour, we wear white.
    With that said these are also called the awful days, we must remember that the One who has been giving all this good is also searching through each of our intentions and deeds and remembers everything that fails to stay in our memory. For the good and the better. It's the most crucial period of the whole coming year when we can find extra strength and inspiration for forgiveness, search of soul and preparation of the vessel for the blessing of the whole year to come, upon all of Israel home and abroad.

    This is the dramatic beauty of Rosh HaShana, both a happy and warm family celebration while experiencing an uneasy awakening of the soul to the awe in the standing of the whole situation at once.
    This traditional piyyut expresses the fear of the public emissary, who is about to represent those who pray during the days of Judgment before Hashem, it is said after the Amidah, as a prelude to the repeat of the public emissary, in the morning and in the supplement of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The emissary of the public is frightened and terrified of his standing in front of Hashem, who is described as a flame of fire burning around him angels, as a King sitting on the throne of Judgement, like a mighty King, like a hero who explodes and shutter rocks. Faced with these powers, the public emissary expresses his lowliness, his guilt and his desire to escape. Toward the end of the piyyut, he regains his composure and succeeds in asking G-d's forgiveness of the poor in the doorway, while relying on the merit of the forefathers. The piyut is replete with fragments of verses borrowed from 13 books from the Tanakh, as well as ancient Midrash and piyutim. Difficult to translate but sounds very beautiful and mesmerizing in Hebrew:

    Hashem I've heard the hearing of You
    I'm terrified Hashem
    Hashem I've heard and I tremble,
    The day You count and commend me Hashem
    Remember for we are dust
    Remember for we are dust

    Hashem I've heard the hearing of You
    I'm terrified Hashem
    Hashem King sitting on the Throne of Judgement, Hashem
    Remember for we are dust
    Remember for we are dust

    Hashem I've heard the hearing of You
    I've heard and I tremble Hashem
    Hashem answer the poor standing before You Hashem
    Remember for we are dust
    Remember for we are dust
