Parashat Nitzavim-Vayelech "Taking The Right Path"

So, here we are at the end of the summer. It’s back to reality. So many are packing up and heading back to school, and the stores are stocking their shelves with various school supplies. Where does the time go? It feels as though we were just boarding the buses for our departure for our 2013 summer at Camp.  And suddenly, we woke up, and the chill of autumn was in the air, and we knew that summer was coming to an end.
Life is like that.
Now, as the year draws to a close, we’re up to the last Parashat of the year, the double portion Nitzavim-Vayelech. As we leave one experience and begin a new one, we know that we will be faced with new challenges.  We’ll make mistakes along the way. Will we see that? Hopefully, we will try to do what is right, follow a path that is good, toward blessing and peace.

  1. The change of seasons reminds me of a part of a book that I am reading called psycho-cybernetics. It talks about how we need to make psychological shifts from activity to activity and recognize that the mindset for one will be different for another. Like when we are doing serious study we have a different focus than when we are having casual conversation. Thanks for the post. It's a reminder that we make these changes on a broader scale as the seasons, on the calendar as well as our lives, change.
