L’Shanah Tovah

Happy New Year!

Jewish New Year that is.


“love” in Hebrew

 5772 to be exact.  It starts tonight at sundown with, of course, a festive meal followed by services.

L’Shanah Tovah means “for a good year.”

L’Shanah Tovah is a shortening of “L’shanah tovah tikatev v’taihatem” and it means “May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.”

pronunciation guide: shanah tovah, like hanna with a sh and tovah with a soft t rhymes with shanah.

And finally a link to a very Happy New Year greeting sent to me by one of my friends from the Prager Israel trip Gil C.

Forwarding positive messages about Judaism is the way of our people.

    To my Jewish friends from the Prager tour–have a blessed holy days period with family and friends. I will continually pray for the Peace of Jerusalem though from some of the signs I saw in the arab districts it does not look promising. Hope springs eternal

    I absolutely love this and have listened to it several times! What a wonderful time we had in Israel and what insights were gained! Let us all pray for a better resolution in that part of the world…. It doesn’t seem promising, unfortunately….
