|10/04/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Yom Kippur|
“And HaShem spoke unto
Moses, saying: Howbeit on the tenth day of this seventh month is the
day of atonement; there shall be a holy convocation unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls; and
ye shall bring an offering made by fire unto HaShem. And ye shall do no manner of work in that
same day; for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement for you before HaShem your G-d. For
whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from his people.
And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any manner of work in that same day, that soul will I destroy
from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work; it is a statute for ever throughout your
generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of solemn rest, and ye shall afflict
your souls; in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye keep your sabbath.”
- Leviticus 23: 26 - 32
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Yom Kippur, the most solemn of all the Jewish holidays, the Day of Atonement, began last night at sundown.

|Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, marks the end of
the Yamin Noraim (Days of Awe) and falls on the 10th day of Tishrei
(Tishri), the seventh month in the Jewish calendar. Many Jewish
communities engage in intense prayer and fasting.
What do people do?
Many Jewish people around the world observe Yom Kippur each year. Many Jewish people prepare and eat a festive meal on the day before the holiday starts. They also give to charity and visit people to seek or give forgiveness. Many also gather in a synagogue before sunset for a prayer service. Particular customs are associated with this service in some communities. Men may wear a kittel or sargenes (a white robe) and a tallit (prayer shawl).
Many people of Jewish faith do not eat or drink, wear leather shoes, wash themselves, or use perfumes for about 25 hours. Many choose to wear white clothes as a symbol of ritual purity. Outside of Israel, some Jewish people may take some of their annual leave at this time to allow them to mark Yom Kippur.
Yom Kippur is a public holiday in Israel, in which stores, post offices and other businesses are closed. Public transit services do not run and there are no radio or television broadcasts in Israel on this day. It is considered impolite to eat in public or drive a motor vehicle, although secular Jews may ride bicycles, particularly on the eve of Yom Kippur.
Yom Kippur is not a nationwide public holiday in countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. However, many Jewish businesses, organizations and schools may be closed on this holiday and the streets around synagogues may be busy.
Yom Kippur is often considered the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. Yom Kippur’s origins lie in a ritual purification of the Temple in Jerusalem from any accidental ritual impurities that had occurred in the past year. The Kohen Gadol (high priest) entered the Holy of Holies at the center of the temple on Yom Kippur. It was important that he was spiritually and physically as pure as possible.
Many rituals were carried out to ensure that the Kohen Gadol was pure and that he did not carry any ritual impurities into the Holy of Holies. Yom Kippur became a more somber holiday after the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed. The Torah calls the day Yom HaKippurim and Leviticus 23:27 decrees a strict prohibition of work and affliction of the soul upon the 10th day of the seventh month, known as Tishrei.
Many Jewish men wear a kittel or sargenes and a tallit on Yom Kippur. A kittel is a simple white robe that is also used as a shroud and is worn by bridegrooms in some Jewish communities. A tallit (tallis, taleysm) is a prayer shawl with tzitzis strings tied through each of the four corners. The strings are tied in different ways in accordance with the wearer’s tradition. One or more of the strings were traditionally dyed using a blue dye known as tekhelet, which may come from the murex trunculus, a type of sea snail.
Today is also the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 10/03/14 - "Trouble?":
I was reading
Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67 - of VA)
about ISIS and decided to print it. The computer not only took it off my
site but from the entire computer! No, it would not print.
Are we in trouble here? From ISIS? or From the US government? Can you reprint?
YIKESARONI! Thanks, Linda May! I have no idea. My computer is not interfacing with Paul's printer at the moment, so I have no way of checking. Our own computers - especially Paul's - "eat" things on a regular basis. They just vanish into cyber space. I thought it was a case of old electronics.
That's a very scary thought, though. I'm hoping (as is nearly always the case with me) it was a situation of "user error." If not, we're all in big, BIG trouble!!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/03/14:
at London Gatwick, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft.
Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727. An
irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming:
"US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right
onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I
know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between 'C' and 'D',
but get it right!"
Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "G_d! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour, and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"
"Yes ma'am," the humbled crew responded.
Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out in Gatwick was definitely running high.
Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"
