Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “What has happened to this day?”

I wake up in the morning, and within a very short time I discover that it is midnight or 2:00 A.M.

And I wonder: What has happened to this day?

Where did it evaporate to?

Every Rosh Hashanah I regret that there is no double leap year, with a second month of Elul.

Had there been a second Elul, I might have been able to finish something before Rosh Hashanah.

But there is no second Elul, and again I feel that I am short of so much time.

The day is short, amazingly short, and it ends in tremendous speed.

And thus go by weeks and months and years.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
