Rosh Hashanah: the Jewish New Year 5782

Rosh Hashanah: The Jewish New Year 5721

Something to remember;
Not routine or ritual but something vital,
What is really being told
Is that a culture is alive and well,
Five thousand seven hundred
Eight-two years old.
Whether you take holy scripture to your heart,
Or you do not,
The prophecy of a new year
With optimistic hope and cheer
Exists in all traditions
In their search for a completion of perfection;
Every alphabetic letter with significance,
Every number having function;
An occasion and a celebration
With a meaning and a purpose.

These aside,
Let us ride out 5782
Contemplating self-examination.
“Shana Tova” everyone***
