Shabbat Parshat NITZAVIM-VAYELECH
It is customary NOT to bless the coming month in the Synagogue after the Shabbat Torah reading. This is "in order to outwit the satan" (i.e. not to alert his attention to the coming Day of Judgment in order to avoid his accusations), and in any case, the month of Tishri is so holy that it is "blessed in heaven" instead. However those who have the custom of reciting the entire book of Psalms on Shabbat Mevorchin also do so on the Shabbat before Rosh Hashanah.
According to the opinion of Rabbi Eliezer HaGadol, today is the Anniversary of the first of the “Six Days of Creation”, which culminate on the first day of Rosh HaShanah, the sixth day of Creation, when Adam was created. On each of these six days the unique light of the associated Sefirah shines in all the worlds.
The Holy Zohar states that at the end of days an awesome event will take place on this date (Balak 212b).
