L’Shana Tova – Happy New Year 5774

Posted Friday, September 6th, 2013. Filed Under Voices of wisdom

Jewish people around the world, including me and my family, are celebrating the Jewish New Year. It is a time for joy and laughter, happiness and peace. It is a time to surround yourself with family and friends; to be grateful for all that is in your life.

With so much craziness still happening in the world: Syria, Iran, and Egypt, it is easy for me to look at my life and say how grateful I am. I have learned so much about myself and others.

This high holiday is about celebrating the sweetness of life. One of the traditions is to eat apple and honey to signify a sweet year ahead.

It is also a time to begin reflecting as we move toward Yom Kippur – to look at forgiveness for self, others and between ‘man’ and G-d. It is at this time that G-d will decide who will suffer next year and who will flourish, who will die and who will live. This past week I have known of 5 people to die. I always look at this time of year as the potential for exiting. So when I do hear of someone passing away I just feel in my heart that it was their time to leave before the New Year.

The New Year coincided nicely with the new moon on September 5th. New moons are about what you want to create. I am excited about this coming year. I am nearly done my youth handbook and ready to go to print. I spent the summer reaching out to people and now I am looking to connect to see where my path can cross with them so we can begin to create and make a difference. I have a great support system in place.

I will enjoy this holiday and then begin reflection on who I am, my choices and how to stay true to me; to be a person full of compassion, kindness and unconditional love.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful weekend.

All my love,
