L’Shannah Tova 5770!

This evening marks the beginning of Judaism's Days of Awe, as we welcome the New Year, called Rosh HaShannah. It is a time of celebration and introspection.
We adhere to a principle called "t'shuva," which is generally translated as "repentance." The literal translation, though, is "to return;" I like that better because it implies that we start the new year with a clean slate (and forgive those who've slighted us, granting them a clean slate, as well).
We wish all of our readers a happy, healthy and blessed New Year.
