Adam, the first human being, opened his eyes to a world that appeared to have always been. He lifted his eyes to the vast sky above. He gazed about at the bustling life. He beheld mighty mountains and majestic waterfalls, flowing rivers and verdant forests.
And he cried out, “I know what this is! This is not just a jungle! This is the garden of a great and magnificent King! This is not just a sky! This is the vast glory of my Maker! This is not just a mountain, or a waterfall, a tiger or an ant—this is all the majesty of the Infinite, who created a world out of kindness and might, beauty and wonder, glory and majesty, so that His creatures might know Him!”
Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary of that day. It is the first day of creation, for only then did the world have meaning. ~ R’ Tzvi Freeman based on the teachings for the Lubavitcher Rebbe zt”l
