L'Shana Tova




The High Holidays are upon us Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This is my favorite time of year. I get way too inside my head and my heart. Oy, do I peel the layers. I cleanse. I clean. I organize. I reflect about the choices I've made, the people in my life, where I'm going, where I've been, who and what I've lost. So, so, so much to ponder.



This year feels different for many reasons. Some I know about and others I don't--not yet, anyway. The Kaddish, a prayer for the dead, has always been one of my favorite prayers. This year, reciting it will feel different, too. I just know that.



Guthy is Jewcying all month about the High Holidays. Be sure to hit it daily and read her wonderful posts and don't forget to comment. Yesterday's post, "Sit, Already, and Have a Little Something" is filled with fabulous, funny heebaliciousness. Today's post, "Kindly, with Open Eyes?" is about tolerance and pausing for a quick shalom. Run. Nosh. Now. It's beauuutiful.

PS: Do not forget to hit Facebook to use my brother's iPredict application. Capisce?!

L'Shana Tova,

I worried you weren't going to mention food until you mentioned Amy's ...have a little something! Food is prayer too right?

That's all fine. What, however, do you think about Obadiah Shoher's criticism pf Rosh Hashanah as aholiday that has nothing to do with New Year? Here, for example http://samsonblinded.org/blog/petty-paganism.htm
