To All Readers of Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen
Rosh HaShanah the Jewish New Year is upon us. It begins a time of introspection and prayers for the coming year. We search through the foibles and mistakes of the past in order to understand how to make the future better.
For the two days of Rosh HaShanah we eat honey upon our bread. It is but a simple tradition, reminding us of the sweetness of all life has to offer and the sweetness to come.
May this coming year bring an end to wanton destruction and death. May it be the beginning of a new dawn - where we learn to understand, respect and accept one another. May it be the end of sorrow and tears.
Wherever you are on this planet, whatever your beliefs, and however you practice them - may this coming year bring a measure of peace to our homes. May it bring with it - to you, your families and all your friends -
A year of blessings,
A year of health,
A year of prosperity,
A year of laughter,
A year full of all the wonderful things in our lives.
I will end with the traditional greeting to all said in synagogue on this holiday:
So may it be the will of God. Amen."
Shanah Tovah. Techatev Ve'Techatem Li'Alter Chaim Tovim U'le'Shalom.
Amen. Ve'ken Yihe Razon"
