Ketiva Vahatima Tova to All my Readers

5774 has been a tough year for all of Kelal Yisrael.  Abraham Foxman called it an annus horribilis.  With the boys being kidnapped and murdered, rockets flying everywhere causing mass panic and some injuries and deaths, soldiers getting killed, anti-Semitism rising, new, massive terrorist groups emerging, Iran gaining more legitimacy for itself, Turkey's becoming more anti-Israel and anti-Semitic by the day, we had no one to turn to but our Father in Heaven.  We hope that, as we say in Ahot Ketana, תכלה שנה וקללותיה and תחל שנה וברכותיה (may the outgoing year and its curses end and may the new year and its blessings begin).

5775 gives us new hope for a better tomorrow.  There will surely be wars to be fought, but unlike some of the wars Israel has fought in the recent past, G-d willing, these wars will have definitive, positive resolutions to them.  Those will, in turn, G-d willing, lead to the real war to end all wars (unlike the first war so described a century ago).

We ask Hashem to accept our prayers in Selihot every day:
תִּשְׁעֶה לִתְפִלָּתִי וּלְשִׂיחַ רִנָּתִי
כִּי אַתָּה תִקְוָתִי וּמִי לֹא יְעִידֶךָ

May our prayers for a very good upcoming 5775 be accepted.

Tizku Leshanim Rabot, Ne'imot VeTovot.
Ketiva Vahatima Tova.
A gut gebenched yahr.
Shana Tova.

As many of you have heard , there were two people who broke into the white house recently and one got all the way in ,literally.
From the Baal Shem Tov we learn that everything in this world that happens is for us to learn from. Well since this happened so close to Rosh Hashana , I think we can learn that our Tefilos can make it all the way in , It's a Shaas Ratzon just like these two made it all the way in - it is a Siman for us to Daven really hard and we will I'Y "H be Zoche that our tefilos will be accepted at the highest level - A Gut Gibensht Yohr
