Happy New Year

For those fellow Members of the Tribe, Shana Tovah and a Gut Gebentched Yar.  And for those more religious, a ksivah v’chasimah tovah.

For the goyim, tonight starts the Jewish New Year.  Not a party night like December 31, but rather a chance to think about the last year and hope—and pray—for a successful new year.  In Judaism, we believe that the entire year is determined in the next 10 days between Rosh Hashanah (lit. Head of the Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).  As the psalm goes, “who shall live and who shall die, who by fire and who by water….”  A weighty thing.

So I’ll be out the next two days, at synagogue mostly.

Please take care of my Internets (as Jane calls it) in the meantime, will you please?
