I have an article called, “Mercury Retrograde in Libra – Where is the truth?” if you would like to read more. As the leaves are changing colors you can match those colors with your wedding invitations.
I decided to make challah for the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) and thought I would share the process. What I couldn’t believe was how easy it is to make this egg bread and that you shouldn’t be intimidated when considering making bread from scratch.
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)?
Mix in a bowl the flour, salt and 1 tablespoon of sugar. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs until frothy and add to the flour mixture plus the yeast mixture, boiling and cold water and oil and mix for about 5 minutes either by hand or with a mixer and dough hook. I mixed the dough until there were no lumps.
Here is where I do have an issue religion-wise: when someone eliminates as a partner an incredible person just because their parents want them to marry within their religion. Do you know how many adults I run into whose parents torture them over having to marry within their religion?
While the days may still be warm, the nights in September can be chilly. Your best bet is either an early outdoor ceremony earlier in the afternoon and then a reception inside or an all indoor ceremony. Make a note in your wedding invitation about your ceremony and reception plans so guests can be prepared and dress accordingly.
Meditation: The Eucharist was not the only sacrament founded on that first Holy Thursday. The Church also traces Christ’s founding of the priesthood to this evening, through His command to celebrate the Eucharist “in remembrance of Me.” What attitude should the Twelve, and all priests and bishops after them, bring to their priesthood? The sense of pride and superiority that the chief priests and Pharisees had adopted by Jesus’ time? Quite the opposite, as we see here.
Rabbi Dan Moskovitz and Jason Mesches wrote the lyrics for “Call Your Zeyde”. Temple Judea clergy and staff make you smile as you watch their antics on this inspiring parody of “Call Me Maybe”. You can find it on YouTube. After watching the video, call your zeyde (grandfather) or any other relative you miss, and wish them a sweet year.
