Happy Rosh Hashanah!
“Shana Tova - May you be inscribed in the Book of Life!”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, begins 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 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!

“If life has taught me anything, it’s that no matter what you should do,
you should love. Even if you’re in the process of murdering someone,
possibly a politician, your heart should be filled with love.”

From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/30/16:
|I went into my local wireless store looking
for a solution to a problem.
"I have a horse that I can't seem to get going when I mount him," I told the customer service representative. "Nellie won't listen to my commands, and when she does start moving, it's just a slow, lazy trot."
"I have just what you need for your phone," the rep replied.
"And what would that be?"
