In Judaism, there are quite a lot of religious items which are considered to be of great importance. Rosh Hashanah is also a time that Jews celebrate G-d’s creation of the world and embark on personal paths of repentance.
The Bible says, “The day of the LORD comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes.” 1 Thess 5:2,3. Christ affirmed, “If the goodman .had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.” Matthew 24:43. Christians are like the goodman today, not watching, because they don’t know when to watch. Christ warns, “If you don’t watch, I will come to you as a thief.” Revelation 3:3. This article looks at when to watch.
Let the finished dough loaf sit out at room temperature for another 45 minutes and brush on an egg wash and sprinkle poppy or sesame seeds if desired. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.

Its going to be a great week for creative projects, and friends, and family.
You tell me Merry Christmas is a general term and not a religious term. It’s a way to celebrate the time of the year. Is it really? Do you say your children are on holiday break, December break or Christmas break? Do you wonder why in many schools our Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur classes are not cancelled and that would be akin to classes on Christmas Day?
Saturday is the most popular day of the week for weddings. However, it is always a good idea to consider religious observances. For devout Jews and Christians, weekend ceremonies may not be an option. The good news is that weekday wedding are much cheaper for everyone. Not only are reception halls more affordable during the week, but hotel rates are also cheaper. Of course, we are only talking about small savings here. If you truly have your heart set on a Saturday wedding, it doesn’t make much sense to switch to another day just to save a few hundred dollars.
By the time we threw an entire loaf my parents and sisters were all crying in each other’s arms. We walked back in silence. In my thoughts were imagining a ram’s horn and ultimate repentance to G-d for obeying. Though I don’t wonder when my ram will show up in a thicket, I am thankful for all of the times that a ram has helped me go on with my life in peace.
