Rosh Hashanah Rabbi New, thank you for so effectively transmitting the Divine passion that is Gifted upon you. I can't imagine any Jewish soul not being touched by it. The Almighty will look at our hearts and will be pleased to see the utmost love we have for Him.

May all of Israel have the sweetest, healthiest, happiest new year yet. Reply

Rosh HaShana This day is given in the Torah as Yom Teruah. The name Rosh HaShana came from the pagan holiday of Rosh Hashana in Babylon, celebrated twice during the year. Once, at our Rosh HaShana and once 6 months earlier.

The Hebrews in Babylon picked up many things from the pagans. In fact, the names of our Hebrew months are all Babylonian names!!

Rosh HaShana comes 30 days after the beginning of the month followed 10 days later by Yom Kippur (40 days after the beginning of the month). The 30 days refers to the basics needed for Judaism, honoring our Creator. The 40 days is the typical purification period needed for this day of purification!! Reply

TODA RABBA! The image of two gifts we receive from G-d on Rosh Hashanah that you painted for us in this class is very very magnificent! Thank you for bringing more bright colors to the picture we already had been taught about before that Reply
