For America’s Muslim population, there are specific rules that govern weddings. Say a Jew became president and enforced all American families to convert, made his Cabinet, Congress, and the Senate Jewish.
Your Jewish neighbour has invited you to celebrate Rosh Hashanah – The Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah (literally “head of the year”), is the Jewish New Year. If you have been invited to a meal to celebrate the New Year, here are some facts you should know and some ideas for gifts to give.
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)?
When you think of Rosh Hashanah you think of challah! These round loaves of braided egg bread are one of the most recognizable food symbols of the holiday. During this High Holy Day, challah loaves are shaped into rounds, spirals (ladders) or birds. These shapes are symbolic of the cycle of life, hope that prayers rise to heaven, and the continuity of creation. Depending on preference and family recipes, sweet fruits such as raisins or even honey are added to the loaves to make them extra sweet.
September is a good month to be Ms. Smarty Pants. September is both Classical Music Month and Read-A-New Book month, so start a book club and throw a party. Feature classical music as guests arrive and choose a new book for everyone to read. Then, gather again in October to discuss the book.
The CFDA greatly respects and understands the importance of this holiday but, given the international calendar of European shows directly after New York, we do not have the option to shift the dates later. We realize that the observance of the holiday will impact some in their ability to attend or present shows-but we are asking that everyone please work with us to make this situation work as best as possible.
September is also back to school time. If you’re planning on including children as flower girls or ring bearers, you should talk to their parents early to make sure they can make it to your wedding.
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.
