In other words, I believe that the choices we make get us to that destiny. A simple stand can be found for as little as $10, while a hand-painted wooden shofar stand can cost $35 or more. Also, it is a divine summons to repentance and improvement.
I usually don’t celebrate Jewish holidays since most of my friends practice other religions. When I was in high school growing up on the east coast one of my friends in Boy Scouts had brought apples and honey to school with him for lunch. I asked why he suddenly changed his diet and he said it was because he and his family were celebrating the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah.

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.
Hank Greenberg anchored the infield at first base. “Hammerin’ Hank” played in 153 games and led the league with 63 doubles. His .600 slugging percentage and 139 RBI ranked third in the AL. He also scored 118 runs, had 201 hits, 26 home runs, and a 1.005 OPS. As Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year, approached, the observant Jew struggled over whether to play. A rabbi found an obscure reference to children playing ball on the holiday and counseled Greenberg. The slugger played, but sat out on Yom Kippur.
Making the case of respecting our fellow brothers and sisters why not include everyone by saying “Happy holidays?” I do realize you may offend the atheist who can write his or her own essay.
Played like a French horn, the hollowed shofar sounds vary from plain deep notes, treble trills, moaning sounds, and staccato beats. During rituals, three basic sounds are emitted from the shofar- the tekiah (bass), teruah (treble), and shevarim (three connected short sounds.) The shofar is blown in a sequence noted by a blend of the three sounds.
Please do not send me a card with Jesus in a manger. If you are going to send me a card please write or buy one that says Seasons Greetings. I am speaking for many who won’t or can’t speak. I am speaking for generations who came before me and who paid a huge price to be heard. I believe they would feel as I do.
