Let us start the New Year as new people. The idea of the new year is to leave behind all the negative aspects of ourselves and the previous year and begin anew.  May we be helped from Above to shake off any connection to unhappiness, negativity, unholiness and anything that prevents us from serving the Almighty with true joy. Let us already imagine ourselves in a new world: the world of Moshiach. As Chassidus explains: You are where your thoughts are. Let us imagine spending Tishrei in Yerushalayim, in the third beit hamikdash. Let us draw down a year of miracles and simcha: a truly sweet new year. Shana tova umetukah!
