Shana Tova

Today is Eriv Rosh Hashana or the eve of the New Year for Jews all over the world. Today we go to temple (if we are at all religious) and pray and give thanks for all we are grateful for in the past year and to look forward to what is to come in the year that follows, that starts at sundown tonight.

I am incredibly grateful for my life, my health, my family and friends. I pray for peace in the world for every living soul.

To all I wish a "shana tova", a good year!


  1. Shana tova, Lynn. Thought I am not Jewish, I wish you and myself a happy new year!

  2. Thank you Annie! And I continue to wish the same to you and your loved ones.

  3. Lynn, you asked and I came by to tell you that it's my husband who is in the hospital. That's the reason I've got some photos of the place. I am hoping he comes home tomorrow so that I can find other things to photograph.

    Thank you for asking.

  4. Annie, if it's okay with you I will add your husbands name (even if I have to say Annie's husband) to our prayers tomorrow in temple for those in need of healing.

    I do wish the very best outcome for him and for the entire family.

  5. I envy this religious holiday because it is so very important in your faith, and because it has values from which we can all benefit,if we stop to pause a moment or two and reflect. My grandkids have gone to our city's Jewish Community Center day care and after school programs since infancy and they have been instilled with wonderful values.

  6. Lynn, both my husband and I will appreciate your prayer. He'll have a little test and procedure today and we hope it goes well so he can come home.

  7. Thank you Kate for your words and sentiments about Judaism/Rosh Ha Shana. How nice to hear from a non-Jew, and to know your grandchildren benefit from these important values. I too feel they are universal.

    I peeked into your blog for a minute and will definitely go back and give it more attention. It looks VERY interesting. We have family in Minnesota! And you met Garrison! Wow! ;-)

    Glad you stopped by.

    And Annie, I am leaving for temple in a short while and will add your husband to the "Mishabera" (Healing prayer list). I do wish you all wellness.


Thanks for leaving your comments as I love hearing from you. Your words of encouragement are why I continue to draw!
