High Holy Day Hiatus

It is time for a little break from blogging to observe Rosh Hashanah, which begins tonight at sundown. This is our Jewish New Year, where we reflect back on the year while planning ahead through resolutions. The holy days will end on September 18, with the fasting (and breaking the fast) of Yom Kippur, which is the Day of Atonement. Erev Rosh Hashanah (the evening before the first full day of Rosh Hashanah) will be celebrated with our traditional apples & honey to symbolize a sweet year. Our holiday begins with the blowing of the shofar as shown here-

May everyone be inscribed in the Book of Life this year and may you have a wonderful New Year.
