The Chassidishe Parsha
 Atem Netzavim Hayom Kulchem 
“Atem Netzavim Hayom Kulchem…”This Parsha is always read prior to Rosh Hashanah. What is the meaning of this Parsha and its relevance to us? What message does it share for us regarding the upcoming High Holidays? The Maamar begins a discussion on the ten enumerated levels of individual in the first Pasuk. These ten levels of people represent the ten different levels of Jews, from the highest to the lowest. The message that this verse is relating is the required unity of all the different types of Jews as a preparation for Rosh Hashanah. Why is this unity of specific importance to Rosh Hashanah and its Avoda? The Alter Rebbe explains that this unity is necessary in order to make a covenant with Hashem ■ more
