Opening the gates of understanding

In the Babylonian Talmud (Rosh Hashana 21:2), it says that “the world was created with fifty gates of understanding”.

Now that we seem to have found a gate at Gath, for the upcoming Jewish Near Year (which starts this coming Sunday night), it is a good occasion to wish you all that during this new year you will all find at least one (and perhaps more) of these “gates of understanding”!

Shana tova u-metuka!
