FIrst Chai Holidays with Chabad I was a graduate student at Boston University when my neighbor/friend who was not Jewish told me he had a short term job at the Chabad House in Kenmore Square and that I should go. He actually took me on Yom Kippur it turned out to be the begining of a very long relationship with Chabad. I will be traveling this year and plan to spend the Chai Holidays with an Chabad House in Rochester MN. I hope everybody has a wonderful year! Reply

Rosh Hashannah What a Lovely Surprise.!
Thank you So Much, All of You, alllso Those whose Names might be still less known to me.
my Year (Having to keep carrying on by myself), would have Completly Different,less Inspired, Stimulated ,Enriched and Endowed, hadit not not been All off You. It iis feeling Embedded, and Daring more to be Yourself.

My First Action (Actions), therefore-after a Cup of Coffee)! to go to my Computer and open all your Mails, and sometimes copy things,(allso from J.W.R).
My -what call "Favourites", is filled wiith your Information, and Classes,etc- so I can always come Back to them - or Repeat-and I allso am gratefull for The Jewish Woman - Site ,(O.A The mikveh - Group) nd The Recipes- being vegetarianbut eating Fish it is grat help During These Days! I have a Nice Collection of Kosher Herbs ,inceasing sometimes, bought in Amsterdam - South.

So I wish Everyone a Wonderfull, EXtra Speciial, Sweet and a Good Shana Tovah 5772
Love from

re: the 10th day of the 1st month No, it was 10 Nissan.
The first month is Nissan even though the new calendar year starts in Tishrei.

Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the seventh month. Reply

Very Well Done Video We will be celebrating Rosh Hashana first in our Progressive Synagogue praying, studying, and then dining with family. How fortunate we are to have so many wonderful flavors of Judaism-each with its own unique sustenance. L'Shana Tova Reply

Re: Was there a point to this film I missed? "Firsts" are important. You remember firsts. They are a chance to start something fresh. They guide you later in life, when you ask, what am I doing? Why? Whenever there is a first, there is a big idea. And, as our Sages say, "Everything follows the head."

All the more so with the First of Firsts. All the more so with the beginning of Existence, the birthday of the world, Rosh HaShana. It's a huge opportunity to return to the freshness of "First" and plan out the rest of your life.

You should go from strength to strength increasing in health, wealth and joy. Have a sweet new year! Reply

to anonymous of Aug 25 I believe the point was to inspire you to delve into the details of Rosh Hashana by going on to the site and learning more about this vitally important 'first'.

Shana Tova to all Reply

Was there a point to this film I missed? I'm still waiting for this little film to make a point, inspire me, or something...

May I ask, as politely as possible{ what was the point? Reply

To Anonymous via chabadsudbury.com Yes, I will offer a prayer for that AND for a house, a spouse, a car etc. There is no reason to limit the blessings we can ask of G-d. The main thing, is that the goodness in what we receive should be apparent.

Waiting for Moshiach-when all of us will experience only goodness and light in the truest of manners! Reply
