Happy 5774


Today is the first day of Jewish New Year, 5774. We traditionally eat apples and honey in hopes for a sweet new year. My wish for all is a year of peace, happiness, good health and sweet, sweet times!

My Great Grandmother, of blessed memory, used to insist on the most tasty caramel apples . . one for each of us - it was her version of honey and apples - from when i was very young - It took me a while to make the Rosh HaShannah connection - BUT, the need for One Perfect Caramel Apple at the Right Time Every Year - continued and has now become one of my cherished rituals . . . How I Love Her Still . . .

A Year of Sweetness to YOU!!!

I just happened to have purchased a bag of apples from the farmers market and have got a bottle of honey from the county fair in August so I'll be joining you in the celebration today! Best wishes for the Happiest New Year ever!

I love that you post about the Jewish Holidays. It is good for us to learn. We have studied many of the Old Testament celebrations of God's chosen people. There are even video studies that some of the women's Bible ministries have watched like "Feasts of the Bible." Last month, a rabbi from the Knoxville area came and taught one of the big Sunday School Classes, instructing them in this area. Next month, a busload from our church is going to worship at their tabernacle.
