Rebbe Nachman of Breslev said that on Rosh Chodesh the desire to return to Hashem is so powerful that it is felt throughout the entire creation. He said that even sinners in Hell cannot escape a certain regret for their sins and are drawn closer to G-d. Here is a powerful rendition of Yehuda Green singing Reb Shlomo Carlbach's melody for The Blessing of the New Month.
Here is the translation: May it be the will before You, Hashem our God and the God of our forefathers, that you inaugurate for us this month for goodness and for blessing. May You grant us long life, a life of peace, a life of goodness, a life of blessing, a life of sustenance, a life of physical health, a life in which there is fear of heaven and fear of sin, a life in which there is no shame or humiliation, a life of wealth and honor, a life in which there will be in us love of Torah and fear of heaven, a life in which Hashem fulfills the requests of our hearts for the good. Amen. selah.
Have a Blessed Month,
Dr. Zev Ballen
