Rosh Hashanah is a special time, a time of change, time for new beginnings. It is the start of the Jewish new year and is a period of reflection on the past year; how can we pursue our dreams and goals in the coming year? To celebrate this renewing time of change we gather together with friends, family and loved ones not only to reflect but to celebrate the sweetness of life. If you’re hosting this year’s Roash Hashana dinner be prepared to make this most special of holidays truly memorable.
We may not feel much like flirting or cuddling as we approach the end of the second week of September, but by Saturday, September 13th, our moods should begin to improve. People will be cooperative and polite, and it will be a great weekend for parties and social events. Some of us may get some very creative ideas, and group projects will go well all the way through the Fall Equinox, September 22nd. Its going to be a great week for creative projects, and friends, and family.
Honey Dishes: The tradition of dipping apples in honey is a seasonal tradition that makes the most of the year’s harvest. The pilgrims couldn’t have done better. An event with many guests will require a well coordinated and thought out array of apples and honey. As guests may want to engage in this activity as an appetizer, or while standing. Use different glass serving dishes and bowls for best effect. If you’re serving different types of honey; lavender, organic or traditional varieties, labeling the bowls isn’t a bad idea!
Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the Hebrew year. It is called Rosh Hashanah since “rosh” means head and “shanah” is year – the “ha” part makes the whole “head (or beginning of) the year” So, when you meet them, it is nice to wish your Jewish friends a happy new year. “Happy New Year” or the Hebrew equivalent “Shana Tova” are appropriate greetings.
Meditation: The Words of Institution are recorded four times in the New Testament. Three of them occur in the “Synoptic Gospels”: Matthew, Mark and Luke. One might think the Church would use one of those renderings instead on the night that it remembers Christ’s founding of the sacrament it calls “the source and summit of our faith.” Why, then, does it use Paul’s account here?
Always buy shofar from a very reputable dealer. If you do not know one, ask your rabbi or anyone who owns a shofar for recommendations. The quality of shofar would vary depending on several factors and the best thing to do would be to buy one from a trusted dealer.
Another trick of the trade is to cover the finished horn with lacquer to give the horn that beautiful shine, make it stronger, and hide those small defects. But the lacquer finish changes the sound of the shofar, again rendering it non-kosher.
