Tav, Shin, Ayin, Aleph

Every year people try to find significance in the letters of the coming Jewish New Year. I was trying to come up with some words of meaning, but Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis beat me to it.

In previous columns, I mentioned that my husband, HaRav Meshulem HaLevi Jungreis, zt"l, would always form an acronym from the letters of the forthcoming New Year. I believe that were he with us today, he would say that this New Year of Tav, Shin, Ayin, Aleph be a symbol of "Tehei Shnat Am Echad." Let us unify our nation around our Torah and G-d, and if we do that, we can bring redemption to ourselves and the entire world.
