Happy New Year to my Jewish Friends
Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) for Hebrew Year 5782 begins at sundown on Monday, 9/6/21.
Bill and I went to the cemetery to straighten up the graves of Larry and his parents.
I wished them a happy new year in the presence of God.
We talked to Larry’s sister and cousin on the phone and on face time.
According to Jewishpress.com, Rosh Hashanah signifies:
“Annual reminder. The Hebrew word Rosh (ראש) means first/head/beginning and Hashanah (השנה) means the year. The root of the Hebrew word Shanah is both “repeat” and “change.” Rosh Hashanah constitutes an annual reminder of the need to enhance one’s behavior through a systematic study of moral values, learning from experience and avoiding past errors. Rosh Hashanah ushers-in the Ten Days of Repentance, which are concluded on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement).”Jewish press.com
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur were the two holidays that meant the most to Larry. Passover was third on his list.
I am happy that we were able to participate in a small way.
