And to all who celebrate and even those that don't, a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful New Year!!!
l'Shana Tova y'awl, as we say in Virginia... and yes, that is a beamer on blocks in my front yard
That is great!
Yes, yes, Hamar you are so right.
But to make the parallel really clear, why don't we all go up to random strangers off-line, and say "Happy Rosh Hashannah" to them, and insist that they return our best wishes in kind, rather than say "happy holidays" or "Thanks, that's very nice, I hope you enjoy your holiday." Let's brew up a faux outrage campaign every year that not enough people are saying "Happy Rosh Hashannah" and how America will be damned eternally for taking the Jewish out of Jewish New Year or some such balderdash.
Tell ya what, you have 1 thread here on Rosh Hashannah, and there will probably be one on Hannukah, right?
So, let's limit ourselves to one Christmas thread and one Easter thread.
Oh and we'd better get our Ramadan chops in order and maybe Diwali or something, and obviously Samhain. One thread apiece.. and no complaining that the WHOLE COUNTRY doesn't parrot the appropriate greeting.
Yeah let's get rid of that double standard all the way around.
By the way, just for you... Happy Holiday!
What ever happened to peace, love and understanding??
Being a victim trumped them all....
Happy New Year to all our Jewish Friends.
Happy Healthy one to all........................
Happy New Year - Rosh Hashana
Shanah Tovah! May you all be blessed going forward! I am flanked by an orthodox and a conservative Jew neighbors and they are really nice people.
"happy blessed rosh hashana"
This is the truth: Almost every year, an Italian friend has reminded me of the high holy days of my religion. This year it's Icy. What's with that?

Dated an Italian girl once, and if she's representative, Icy speaks the truth
L'shana tova, may you all be inscribed in the book of life... or as I put it to an actuary today (who is also Jewish...)
May the Holy One, blessed be He, inscribe for you in this year's annual report an enormous present value of future benefits, based both on setting the mortality table forward many years, and on an enhanced base level of benefits earned!
Where is this "hash" that you speak of?
This morning my Unitarian Church we celebrated this day of atonement..
Some days church is different..
