I hope you had an enjoyable summer. Everybody needs a little break so hopefully you took some time. Maybe you didn't go anywhere exotic but somewhere more local.  Either way there is something to be said about getting away.  And i'll say it right here. 

When we go on vacation we leave our homes, the comfort of our day to day routine and sometimes even our cars!  
Yes, sometimes we go somewhere luxurious and get spoiled and pampered, but at some point on our trip we stop and say "enough of this, it is time to go home". 

What does that say about us?  In order to connect with our inner self, to recharge one needs to leave the comfort of the material familiarity and go somewhere where the usual is the unfamiliar. 

Eventually however, we all come back home. 

As we approach High Holidays 2013/5774 recognize that in order to get in touch with your inner self you may need to leave the familiar and go outside your comfort zone.   

Don't worry, in this circumstance you are actually going back home!

See you on Shabbos!!
