The students of Mirowitz and I challenge you! During the ten Days of Awe, beginning on Rosh HaShanah and ending with the tekiah gedolah that brings Yom Kippur to a close, we want you to ponder this question:
Each Mirowitz student will be pondering that question too. Tekiah gedolah is the name of the great, long-lasting blast of the shofar that we sound at this season every year. We hope that each of our students will use their lives, their power and their influence to make a great, long-lasting impact on the world.
In this way, we at Mirowitz hope to set up our students for a life of leadership. They may be engineers and politicians, teachers and scientists, writers, artists and entrepreneurs. They may stay in St. Louis or move far away. Wherever their paths take them, we hope that having a personal mission and passion will guide them and make their days meaningful.
Have a sweet New Year and a Shabbat Shalom!
