Tishrei is a time of rebirth and renewal. In Torah, Tishrei is called Yerach ha-etanim, “the month of the strong.” The autumnal equinox occurs during this month, the days and nights are of equal length. The weather is not too hot and not too cold in many parts of the world. This is a month of balance. Tishrei permutes to reishit, which means “beginning”. It is the first month of the year and yet it is also the seventh month. Both numbers are considered the most beloved of all numbers in Kabbalah. As the seventh month from Nissan, Tishrei is the dearest of months, as is said by the Kabbalists, “All sevens are dear.” The word for seven relates to the word satiated and this month is referred to as “the most satiated of all months,” because this month has more mitzvot and holidays than any other month.
