In Judaism, there are quite a lot of religious items which are considered to be of great importance. Every Jew makes use of various types of religious items on a daily basis in order to follow the exact commandments of God. The tallit is the prayer shawl which is used by Jews every morning during the prayers. There are also many other items which might not be used on a daily basis but are still equally important. One such item which is of much importance in Judaism is the shofar.
The weekend of September 27th could bring creative intelligence from unexpected places. Mercury, well established in his retrograde direction, will be channeling Neptune. There is a very strong possibility of messages from past over loved ones this weekend. Any religious gatherings could become strong spiritual connections all the way through Rosh Hashanah, the last day of the month.
Tzedakah boxes come in all shapes and sizes. Some simply look like traditional piggy banks and others ornate boxes. For your child’s crafted box, they can use a shoe box, coffee can, cardboard sugar dispenser, or other containers with a lid. Have your child decorate the exterior of the container with traditional Jewish symbols, such as the shofar. Stickers, paper and paints are all good choices. Once their box is decorated, make sure that a hole or slit is cut in the lid. In the case of the sugar dispenser, you can simply expose the opening. With their box complete, give your child, depending on their age, real or toy coins to fill their box.
So I’ve been labeled a bad Jew by some of the fellow members of the tribe. and that’s okay because I’ve dated outside my religion since high school.

We’ve spent a few weeks preparing for Rosh Hashanah, Judging our Dreams, Mastering the Exit, excited for our Grand Entrance. We have carefully examined our lives and promised to improve. We are planning for the coming year, but, as this week’s portion, “Nitzavim,” “Standers,” reminds us, in one week we too will have our big moment; we will stand before the King. We will have an opportunity to argue our case, to plead, promise, praise, and repent. We have climbed our way out of the past, prepared for our entrance into the New Year, but there is one moment that defines our future: The moment we stand before God. How will we stand?
In time Msztp (they never give their real name) forgot too but everyone once in a while at that time of year he felt as though he had lost something. The problem was he never remembered what.
