L’Shana Tovah - 5769

On the Jewish calendar, the year 5769 begins at sundown this evening. While it has been a good year for my family, there are thoughts of those who are no longer with us and live on in our memories

Repeating what I said last fall, each year is a new beginning and the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur provide an opportunity to cleanse the soul, ask for forgiveness for the collective transgressions of all people, and pray for a better year ahead. . .for everyone around the globe. In terms of what is happening on the world today, our prayers take on even greater significance this year. May all people around the world be inscribed for a year of peace, tranquility, love and freedom from want.

L'Shana Tovah. Have a good, sweet, peaceful year.

I was thinking, what a good time for a new year to start.

I did a Rosh Hashanah post myself...a little sillier than yours though!

Happiness, peace and contentment work for me my friend. Now if only the world would wake up and take heed.

Thanks SAVANNAH. I remember that drawl from the 4 years I lived in N.C.

Thank you CHARLES.

Thanks BONNIE. I enjoyed your silliness.

If you and I were in charge ERIC, it would be a much nicer world! :~D
