Rosh Hashanah 2017

Sundown today marks the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days and the start of a new year. It is “the birthday of the world,” the day when all people pass before the Most High and their fate for the next year is determined. It starts a period of rejoicing and sweetness, but also of serious prayer and contemplation leading to Yom Kippur.

My all my Jewish readers have a new year a sweet as honey, and may your name be inscribed in the Book of Life.

      • I’m not Jewish, but I taught at an Orthodox Jewish high school for two years back in my younger days. I can assure you that kosher food is quite tasty.
