09/21/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Shana Tova - May you be inscribed in the Book of Life!

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, began last night at sunset, ushering in the High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot).

   This Holiday celebration repeats around this same time every year. No doubt most of us are probably not personally observing this holiday, but we don't concern ourselves with such trifling details such as that here. We try our best to celebrate everything together as the one big happy family that we are, so we extend all our best wishes for all good things for all our friends and family!

   Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Back at my high school for the ten-year reunion, I met my old coach. Walking through the gym, we came upon a plaque on which I was still listed as the record holder for the longest softball throw.

Noticing my surprise, the coach said, "That record will stand forever."

I was about to make some modest disclaimer that records exist to be broken, when he added, "We stopped holding that event years ago."
