The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah begins Sunday
evening October 2, 2016 at sundown. The year is 5777!
We ask ourselves, were we good people this year. Did we do unto others as we would have wanted them to do to us? As we reflect on the past year we thank G-d for all that we have been blessed with; good health, family and friends to name a few.
Our family, along with many of you, have lost loved ones, have had close calls with challenging health issues and have managed to persevere.
As our holiday tables loose and gain people as we age, it becomes filled with more friends than family as our families shrink in size – we now, more than ever, cherish the close family and friends that we hold dear to our hearts and begin the new year with thankfulness and hope for a successful, happy and health new year.
Friends are the “Family” we choose, and we hold dear to us the memories we have made together. We know not what the future has in store for us. It does seem easier to face our futures with the friendships and family we have in our lives.
So until next year....we are wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year filled with memories to cherish and good health to enjoy.
An expression Jews say to one one this time of year, L'shanah Tovah, may you be entered into the book of life! Meaning, hope you make through another one!
