On Rosh HaShanah, we make Hashem our king. How do we do that? By focusing on being his nation. After all, Rosh HaShanah is not the day when the world was created, but the day when the human being, the centerpiece of Hashem’s design, was created.
One simple kavanah to have is that when one has a privilege serving a king, taking out his garbage is as precious as being his first minister. Every single little bit of Torah and mitzvos is priceless to us.
On the first day of Rosh HaShanah, the Rebbeim Chabad did not speak — even words of Chassidus. They just concentrated on the idea of crowning the King and said Tehillim the whole day.
Remember, the way you spend the Head of the Year will reflect on how the Body of the Year will be spent.
Shana Tova U’Mesuka, ksiva v’chassima toiva! May we all meet the King of Kings this year, face-to-face, in this world, with the revelation of his Moshiach and coming of geulah.
