A ‘New Year’ Resolution

The week-long holiday period that includes Sukkot, Chol Hamoed, Shmini Atzeret andSimchat Torah is almost over, as are all the attendant festivities, celebrations, family gatherings and trips, and of course, all that over-eating and indulging in food and drink. Most of us will happily (or maybe not so happily) go back to being absorbed by our day-to-day routines; for the great majority, life will return to "normal."

A Night Of Joy

Judaism is meticulous about the manner in which it celebrates Festivals. We eat matzah on Pesach because it recalls the suddenness of the Exodus that happened so quickly there was no time for the dough to rise. On Sukkot, we leave our homes and establish residence in a sukkah to remember, "In sukkot did I house the children of Israel when I took them out of Egypt."

Bringing Up The Next Generation To Care

Communication is both verbal and nonverbal. We tell our children how to behave.

As Sweet As Candy

At this time of year, honey, and the sweetness it represents, plays a major role in our celebrations.

Trip To Ukraine And Poland

As of Tzom Gedalia, Sept. 25, I will be on a trip to Ukraine and Poland.
