The effect of Rosh HaShannah is to strengthen faith. There are great gatherings of Jewish communities everywhere. Especially significant are the gatherings of Jews around the true Tzaddikim. Through these gatherings, all different facets of Faith expressed in all the different souls are joined together in a common hole. They are refined, unified and elevated. The sparks of new intuitions and perceptions flash forth. New levels of understanding begins to develop. The process continues during the 10 Days of Repentance, when we work on ourselves and strive to return to God.

The theory details of the Rosh HaShannah ritual, and in particular the different notes blown on the Shofar, all have the power to bring about these tikkunim. How have you been moved by the blowing of the Shofar on Rosh HaShannah?
