Arise From Your Slumber

June 30, 2006

What does the sound of the Shofar say to you?

The Rambam, Maimonides, heard in the sound the following inspirational message.

“…Arise from your slumber, you who are asleep; wake up from your deep sleep, you who are fast asleep; search your deeds, repent, and remember your Creator.

Those of you who forget the truth because of daily trivialities, indulging throughout the year in the useless things that cannot profit you nor save you, look into your souls, amend your ways and deeds.

Let everyone give up his evil way and his bad purpose…”
