Hey! L’shana Tova!

Rosh Hashana, the Biblical Feast of Trumpets and the Jewish New Year, begins at sunset tonight (Wednesday, September 28, 2011)!

High Holidays: What if I Do it Wrong?

This should be the sweetest time of the year. But, for some, the High Holidays produce incredible anxiety. What if I don’t know Hebrew? Can I say the prayers in English? What if I don’t have a proper kiddush cup? Can I use a wine glass? What if my family doesn’t observe the days? Should I celebrate without them? What if I hate the taste of apples and honey? Do I have to eat it?

Shevarim: yearning for intervention

Shevarim is the name given to three medium, wailing, blasts of the shofar, a trumpet fashioned out of a ram’s horn. It has the broken sound of sobbing cries. When we hear it, we long for intervention, in the same way that Abraham and Isaac must have yearned for rescue, yearned not to be separated, yearned for another chance at life.
