First Blast: Text
You were my help
Second Blast: Commentary
Psalm 121 likewise expresses that God is our help: “I turn my eyes to the hills; from where will my help come? My help comes from God, maker of heaven and earth.” Whatever process of self-transformation we hope to accomplish during these High Holidays, we know that we cannot do it alone; we need the help of others and of God.
Third Blast: Practice
Rosh Hashannah is ten days away! Now is a good time to reach out to a friend or colleague to offer some small assistance with their preparation, either as a conversation partner for the spiritual work of the holidays, or to give practical help in preparing for everything that has to happen for successful holidays on campus.
