Shanah Tovah 

Tonight starts Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, so there will be no blogging for the next three days. (The holiday last 2 days, but the third day is Shabbat.) This marks the beginning of the 10 Days of Penitence, a time of personal and communal introspection, but also of celebration of God's role as King. Interestingly, Rosh Hashanah commemorates the birth of the world, but occurs on the anniversary of the 5th day of Creation, when Man and Woman were created. After all, the notion of Kingship is meaningless without subjects. Judaism, while respectful of nature, regards mankind as the pinnacle and purpose of Creation, not Nature.

I'll probably write more about this during the upcoming week, along with the Jewish notion of repentance.

See you Sunday.
