L'shannah Tova 5780

This evening marks the beginning of Rosh HaShannah, the Jewish New Year, as we welcome 5780.

We were commanded to observe this holiday in the book of Vayikra (Leviticus). It's interesting because, unlike our secular New Year which begins on the first day of the first month, Rosh HaShannah actually begins on the first day of the seventh month of our lunar calendar. And also unlike typical New Year's revelry and fun:

"It is both a time of rejoicing and of serious introspection, a time to celebrate the completion of another year while also taking stock of one’s life."

So, may the New Year be filled health and happiness:

Shanah Tovah Umetukah - Have a Good and Sweet Year - !שנה טובה ומתוקה
