Rabbi Dan Moskovitz and Jason Mesches wrote the lyrics for “Call Your Zeyde”. The evil and wicked, on the other hand, are immediately written down in the Book of Death. Mercury will turn direct next month, and October will have its ups and downs.
The first day of Tishrei marks Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. On this day, Jewish people observe the first of the High Holy Days. Rosh Hashanah is also a time that Jews celebrate G-d’s creation of the world and embark on personal paths of repentance. The holiday is deeply meaningful and a perfect time for parents to teach their children about Jewish customs. One of the best ways to celebrate and learn about Rosh Hashanah is through crafts inspired by the holiday.
If we use this time wisely, by reflecting on our past actions, regretting our mistakes and sincerely vow never to repeat them, we will be forgiven and sealed in the Book of Life. This is the accepted tradition.
Honey Dishes: The tradition of dipping apples in honey is a seasonal tradition that makes the most of the year’s harvest. The pilgrims couldn’t have done better. An event with many guests will require a well coordinated and thought out array of apples and honey. As guests may want to engage in this activity as an appetizer, or while standing. Use different glass serving dishes and bowls for best effect. If you’re serving different types of honey; lavender, organic or traditional varieties, labeling the bowls isn’t a bad idea!
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.
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.
Mix together 1 cup oil, 1 and 1/2 cups sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 cups flour, 3 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. cinnamon. Add milk mixture. Put in bunt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
According to prayer, Jews are not supposed to do any service work during the two days of Rosh Hashanah. While I would love to be able to do this, it is not always possible. Sometimes we just have to fulfill life’s demands. It does not look like I will be able to take off from work this year. However, I will definitely try to take off in the future.
