This week's Art Basel Miami Beach is billed as the largest contemporary art fair in the hemisphere. Until recently, the prognosis for a successful event had been bleak. The worldwide financial crisis had all but devastated the arts. Now, Art Basel, and the art world in general, has reason to celebrate. It seems that prices are up and big spending has returned.

A recent anti-Israeli demonstration at a local grocery store has taken on an ironic twist. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions group led a rally in front of a Publix supermarket located in North Miami. Organizer Len Kaminsky insisted the protest was not anti-Jewish, but rather anti-Zionist. Kaminsky said he is a Jew who's very upset with "the way that Palestinians are being treated by Israel." He is heading a boycott of Israeli products to make his point.

I'm always in a state of total shock when I view newborns. I'm in awe of the teeny size of their hands and fingers and those incredibly minuscule nails. It's totally astonishing that they are real and complete human beings - and still they can be carried with one hand.

Unfortunately, it's not quite that simple.

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, can be a time of optimism. The observances of the holiday are actually quite therapeutic. Engaging in prayer, charity and repentance clears one's head, and sets us in a position to anticipate a clean slate. We hope for Hashem's blessings for a good year.
