The most difficult part of any trip is unpacking when we return home.

Travelling, sightseeing and buying souvenirs are enjoyable and fun. Unpacking when we get back is hard. But if we don’t unpack we cannot use anything we brought back.

We are coming towards the end of the month of Tishrei. We have arrived home from a spiritual trip – a month full of festivals, celebration and inspiration. Along the way we acquired all sorts of new things like forgiveness, renewed commitment, joy and Divine blessings.

Now the work begins to ensure that we can hold on to our festival experience. Each in our own way we have to unpack and use the gifts we received during this month. Whether it is attending a new class, doing a new Mitzvah or strengthening our relationships, we all need to find something tangible with which to take this month’s inspiration with us.

Happy unpacking
