Chapter Summary

The sermon aims to make known how much higher the ways of His providence and goodness are than the ways of ordered nature. It may be concluded from the Scripture's statement "a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns" means that they [the Children of Israel] should remember and take to heart that on this day a frightful and terrifying issue that leads to alarm and rupture looms before them. The only purpose of Rosh ha-Shanah is to prepare for the Day of Forgiveness which comes after it and to remind the man to fix himself and prepare himself for this day. R. Nissim decreed that man should be judged on Rosh ha-Shanah in order to grant the mediocre people these ten days so that they could examine their deeds and return to the Lord. In general, most people believe that the world was created in Nisan.
