Reach for the Shoelaces

As you continue your journey through life in the year 5784, please remember to reach for the shoelaces. Nothing will trip you up faster than an untied shoelace.

Most trips, most falls, can be traced back to a loose shoelace, laying limp and draped across the side of your shoe. And for those dear readers who prefer Velcro sneakers or even slip-ons, then you’re already one step ahead of the game.

I know, I know, I am probably having a little too much fun with this one. But, knowing that most of this year’s Rosh Hashanah messages will be poignant, condemning antisemitism and calling for the Jewish community to unite, I wanted to keep it light and remind everyone to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously.

There is a time and place for everything, especially a good laugh. So, this new year, reach for the shoelaces and hit the ground running.

L’shana Tova.
