Another Hint For This Year
הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ יְהוָה אֵלֶיךָ ונשוב (וְנָשׁוּבָה), חַדֵּשׁ יָמֵינוּ כְּקֶדֶם.
Perhaps, one can say the following:
When it says תעזבנו לארך ימים, the word ימים means "days" and the minimum of days is 2. A day of HKB"H is 1000 years so 2 "days" equals 2000 years. We are asking Hashem why he has forsaken us for the ארך ימים - length of 2000 years. The next verse starts השיבנו ה' אליך - we split the word השיבנו into 2 parts to make it השיב נ"ו - meaning "return 56". Since the destruction of the second Beit Hamikdash occurred in the year 3828 (68 CE), that means that it has been 1944 years since the destruction. We know that the exile is supposed to last 2000 years from the verse לארך ימים, so we are asking Hashem to return 56 of those years (השיב נ"ו) so that we can be close to Him once again (ה' אליך ונשובה) and He will restore our days of old (חדש ימינו כקדם).
May we merit to see this fulfilled speedily.
