The Shofar blows his horn 100 notes......last year I wrote a poem and made a scrapbook page. Apple slices dipped in honey represent our hope for a sweet new year. "May it be Thy will, O Lord, Our God, to grant us a year that is good and sweet." And then eat some challah which is bread shaped into round loaves to symbolize the continuation of life.
This year, I painted........
Lev 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first [day] of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
This evening begins a new year on the Hebrew calendar. Tradition says that on this day we examine our past deeds and ask for forgiveness for our sins....review the history of the Jews and pray for Israel.
It is stated that the destiny of all mankind is recorded by G-d in the Book of Life.
Zec 8:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days [it shall come to pass], that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard [that] G-D [is] WITH YOU."
May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.
