    Yasher koiach, as always.

    Perhaps RYA or commenters can give some advice for how to stay on this high during these days when we (at least those of us with several young children and several jobs) are overwhelmed by all that there is to do. There’s a ton of pressure before Sukkos, between kids, work and yom tov preparations, and although this is obviously how it’s supposed to be, it can be very hard to maintain spiritual vigor and enthusiasm.

    Of course not taking off time to read Cross Currents might be a good start 🙂

    the rav ztl was indeed in a very festive mood after YK. His rebbetzin prepared a a seudah after YK. While for the tzibbur he paskened like the Gaon without any chumrot as to the end of YK, he would not eat until a brisker achtel (90 minutes) (adjusted for Boston to ~105 minutes around YK) before ending shabbos or YK. I never heard of anyone else who combined brisker chumrot for the end time of the day and then added mathematically precise adjustments based on latitude and season. not sure if that and / or his intense simkha after YK kept him from eating.

    yesterday i repeated the kotsker’s explanation of the tekiah after neilah, reminding us that while YK has ended, its impact should follow us into the new year.

    IIRC R’ Aharon Lichtenstein reported that if you ever needed to ask The Rav for something – motzai yom kippur was the time to do it for exactly this reason.

    As I’m recovering from a cold, this morning I considered sleeping in and missing minyan – and then this post came to mind and it helped me get out of bed for minyan. That’s to your zechus, R’ Adlerstein!!
