Dear readers, listeners and fellow bloggers:
Good afternoon. Yesterday, Sunday September 25, one of the two holiest Jewish Holidays started at sundown and will conclude at sundown on Tuesday September 27. Rosh Hashanah celebrates the start of the Jewish New Year and together with the upcoming Yom Kippur represent the holiest dates for he Jewish Faithful. The Jewish calendar is based on the Moon movements, unlike the Gregorian calendar, which is based on the Sun movements. Families get together for a nice dinner, exchanging vows of health and happiness.
In the picture above you can see our son Gian Luca praying at the Western (Wailing) Wall in Jerusalem, during his 2019 scholarship trip to Israel, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Birth Right Israel.
To all our Jewish relatives and friends, we are enthusiastically wishing them Shanah Tovah.
Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay distant.
What do you think? Please tell us.
Don’t leave me alone.
