Nitzavim (standing) is the antithesis of Vayelech (moving), yet they’re attached. This year, these parshiot are read before Rosh Hashanah. What’s the message? In life, you must first stand and reflect and then move with the knowledge you absorbed. It would be counterintuitive to walk in your ways without a contemplative introspection beforehand. Rosh Hashanah is a time of judgement, but also one of reflection and goal-making. Beginnings bring with them renewal, the opportune time for goal-setting. Setting mindful goals at the outset of the year will ensure a year of calculated and successful movement.
