Once the paper mache dries, pop the balloon with a pin and remove it from the center of the paper mache. To encourage this tradition, Temple Judea of Tarzana has devised a unique reminder. No other infield has ever produced such as season.
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.
We may hit a few rough days from Tuesday, September 23rd, through the 25th with Mercury changing directions. Yes, its time for another Mercury retrograde, and usually the most difficult days of his retrograde times are when he is changing directions. Mercury will conjunct Mars as he turns around, and that means accidents! Especially automobile accidents. Drive carefully. Verbal arguments could turn physical very easily during this time, so avoid arguments at all costs. I have an article called, “Mercury Retrograde in Libra – Where is the truth?” if you would like to read more.
Rosh Hashanah (September 19-20, 2009 and September 9-10, 2010) and Yom Kippur (September 28, 2009 and September 18, 2010) will occur in September also. While these are never on the same day on a conventional calendar, you should be aware of these holidays as your Jewish guests may not be able to attend a wedding if it falls on any of these days.
Like the New Year in January, this is the time when Jews call their relatives who live far away. To encourage this tradition, Temple Judea of Tarzana has devised a unique reminder. They have created a fun video using the music from Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me Maybe”. This video is called “Call Your Zeyde”.
As we mentioned earlier, June is the most popular month for weddings. But each season has a top month for nuptials. Once the season has been selected, couples are encouraged to shop around for the best deals at reception halls and from caterers. If you are considering an outdoor affair, weather is always the most pressing concern. The spring may be wetter than the summer, but since most couples rent tents, it shouldn’t be an issue.
The Toldot Yaakov Yosef lived in the mid 1700’s. He was one of the foremost disciples of the Ba’al Shem Tov, the founder of the Chassidic movement. His version of this tradition is as follows.
The 1934 Detroit Tigers boasted the greatest infield ever assembled. The foursome missed one game in leading the Tigers to the pennant. They punished American League pitching while playing tight defense behind their pitchers. Their effort played a major role in Detroit’s success and has stood the test of time.
