At sunset yesterday, Wednesday, September 20, our Jewish friends will begin the celebration of Rosh Hashanah (New Year) and conclude on the evening of Friday, September 22. The year will be 5778.
Here is a traditional greeting to offer: L’shana tovah u’metukah – “For a good and sweet year.”
This is pronounced l’shah-NAH toe-VAH ooh-meh-too-KAH (oo as in food).
Please join me in wishing everyone who is celebrating a very happy new year!
L’shana tovah u’metukah!
This is a great opportunity for all of us to celebrate the good things of the past year and look forward to a new beginning with God’s blessing.
I want to share with you a brief video for the celebration. Last year a group of people from different communities around the world recorded a special blessing song for Rosh Hashanah. The video was done by 92nd Street Y, a cultural and community center. This is the link to the video: I hope you enjoy it.
Hope and Peace to all – Rev. Stacey
