… The tradition of New Year Resolutions has a very old history in this Jewish
Sometimes our New Year Resolutions produce little successes along the
way, but all too often we return to being the same as we were; we slide
back to being very much like the character we used to be. We yearn for
transformation; we want a better and more fulfilling life; we pray for
serenity, strength and compassion. But nothing seems to happen.
