Rosh Hashana

The Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana starts tonight, as we enter the year 5768.

For those of you who are observing this holiday, shanah tovah, and have a happy and healthy new year.

For those of you who are not observing this holiday, have a good rest of the week and be advised that starting this evening, I will be away from the Internet until Saturday night at the earliest.

For those of you who want to know what it's all about, check out Judaism 101: Rosh Hashanah for a good basic introduction to the holiday.

I'm hoping that 5768 will be a better year for me than 5767.
