Happy New Year! shana tovah u'metukah! One of four Jewish New Years, Rosh Hashana celebrates the creation of the world, people, animals and legal contracts. We usually get together on this new moon and eat the sweet treats of creation: apples, almonds, and honey. This year we are deeply in the world and only pause to celebrate our hopes for the future expansion of farm camp Camp Eureka, to "smudge" clean ourselves of negative attitudes with white sage smoke, and to light candles welcoming in the light of new beginnings.
