The High Holy Days would lose their meaning if the experience is not carried forward to the days ahead. I’ve dated women who chanted every morning when they got up and prayed to Buddha. The Sunnis and Shiites coexist in most Arabic countries.
Sound the shofar! When Jericho fell, it was the shofar and the shouts of the children of Israel that brought down the City’s walls. Tracing its origins back more than five thousand years, the shofar is one of the oldest wind instruments in recorded history. Today, the shofar has a special significance and place in the lives and culture of Jewish people.
So you meet your Jewish friends walking along the street this week. What are acceptable ways for non-Jewish people to respectfully convey warm wishes to them for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement, reseptively)?
In the alternative of eating the fish head, pike, carp, tilapia, whitefish, and salmon are commonly served. In some homes, whitefish, tilapia and cod are made into gefilte fish and served with broth or tomato sauce.
The shofar also serves as a symbol of the Jewish people and their covenant with G-d. The call of the shofar represents breath and life. The bend of the horn represents man’s sin. The use of ram’s horn recalls Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his own son as part of his obedience to G-d and G-d’s ultimate offering of the ram as an alternative sacrifice.
As all good, observant Jews are well aware, the best spot to hit in North Williamsburg for all your holiday delicacies is Lee Avenue. As The Brooklyn Paper reminds us, “Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are only a week away.” Time for all observant Jews to begin feasting before they begin fasting. Consider the following Williamsburg haunts for all your requisite schmear.
We “remember” our Lord the same way the Jews “remember” Passover. As we “proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes,” we are there in the Upper Room. We are there at the cross. And we invite the world to join us, if it will but hear the call. “Once for all” does not merely refer to “once for all time.” It also means “once for all people.” Come to the Table.

According to prayer, Jews are not supposed to do any service work during the two days of Rosh Hashanah. While I would love to be able to do this, it is not always possible. Sometimes we just have to fulfill life’s demands. It does not look like I will be able to take off from work this year. However, I will definitely try to take off in the future.
