Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year and the beginning of the High Holiday season, began last Sunday night. Like last year, I attended the Monday morning services at the College, and once again, I was deeply moved by the beautiful liturgy. ... I just wanted to share a few pieces from that liturgy, in the spirit of fostering a spirit of hope and optimism at the beginning of a new year. Maybe mid-September doesn't feel like a new year to you; if not, take it as an opportunity for fall renewal. I hope you enjoy the reflections, and Shanah Tovah!
