Shana Tova...from Mayim Bialek

Friday, September 18, 2020

Here's a link to Mayim Bialek, of Big Bang Theory and Blossom. She explains about today's holiday, Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year. It was part of a weekly greeting email from management at work.

and a review of the ritual foods:

I've never known what transpires on this holiday, despite the fact that I had many Jewish classmates growing up. I never asked. They never volunteered. And I just love Mayim, anyway.

Wishing you peace, tolerance, and love. Which is always needed, but particularly now.

    Thank you! I am Jewish and I only knew about apples and honey, pomegranates. I am not wild about apples, dislike honey (although honey cake and apple cake are good) and I like pomegranate juice but not the fruit because of the seeds. I like POM juice!
    Of course I know about the round challah, which is often sweetened with golden raisins, honey, and may even have cinnamon.
    I was surprised that she didn't mention what became a custom at my Temple--writing what you wanted to get rid of in yourself on a slip of paper, saying a prayer and throwing it in the local river. Kind of saying good bye to what you wished to discard. We did a picnic in the park to do that, which i did not care for--I was hoping to only celebrate Yom Kippor on line with my congregation this year, but I have learned I am welcome and expected for Rosh Hashanah. Skipping services and just lighting candles tonight, but I will attend services online tomorrow morning.
    L'Shanah Tova!
