Rosh Hashana is the day of judgment for all humankind. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. In other words, it’s the birthday of everyone's great, great, great (and so on), grandparents! It is a day of awe and fear and also a day of celebration. Rosh Hashana is a day [...]

Dvar Torah for Rosh HaShanah Proud to be Jewish We’re on the threshold of Rosh HaShanah, the Day of Judgment, when we’re scrutinized, weighed in the balance and then written down for a good year (hopefully), all in less time than it took to read this sentence. Rosh HaShanah is two days long not because [...]
