Especially Monday, September 8th, with Pluto and Jupiter at direct station on that day. Tens of thousands of couples get married on Valentine’s Day, Christmas or on a date that is personally important to them.
As Jews, we are told that on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, “it is written” and on Yom Kippur, the Day of Repentence, “it is sealed.” What is “it”? Our fate for the next year. Where is it written and sealed? In the proverbial Book of Life.
Allow the dough to double and then take out and divide into three equal portions and braid. Or just make a loaf and create a circle to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
I then kneaded the dough by hand on a marble pastry board for about 15 minutes using plenty of flour to prevent sticking and to make the dough very elastic.
A shofar is a type of music instrument which is made from the ram’s horn. The horn is hollowed out and it is blown as a part of the ritual during certain holy days like Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah at certain services. Shofar is an item which is not owned by all Jews. In fact, it is considered to be a very special item which is handed down from generation to generation. If you are interested in purchasing your own shofar then you would have to be quite careful since shofars tend to be quite expensive.
Stop dating people because your parents expect you to marry another Jew, or another Catholic, or another whatever. Most people I know are not religious at all, yet a lot of these same non-religious people still feel the need to date within their own religion due to their parents and their upbringing.
While Greenberg missed one game, on Yom Kippur, the rest of the infield played in all 154. Second baseman Charlie Gehringer enjoyed his best season to date. He led the league in runs (134) and hits (214) while finishing second in batting (.356), doubles (50) and on base percentage (.450). He also knocked in 127 runs. The second baseman walked 99 times and only struck out on 25 occasions. Gehringer finished second in the MVP voting to his manager, Mickey Cochrane.
The size of the Shiite majority is so close to the Sunni minority that power is tossed back and forth. One must understand that they are deeply religious people and amongst themselves, Sunnis believes Shiites are not even Islam at all. That is a slap in the face to Shiites who can trace their lineage back to Muhammad.
You don’t need to wait till September 18 to begin using this greeting since, like the non-Jewish person uses “Happy New Year” from a few days before, so does the Jew. So, if you run into friends who greet you with “Shana Tova,” smile and greet them the same way, right back. If you wish to use a greeting more specific to the Day of Atonement you can wait to begin using that till after September 19 though the rule is never hard and fast. And remember, as you do, that you are following a tradition which was followed by the Lord Jesus Christ, himself.
