Back to school....

Cooler weather...

Apple season, wine season...the county fair...


Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur...

Doh! Why did you have to bring that up!

Let me keep dozing through Labor Day, then I'll start to wake up!

The first question for your table is: Why are these called the "Days of Awe"???

Now, we've been talking about this for 7+ years.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, here are the eight most popular Rosh Hashana Table Talks, please take your pick:

2007 - Dessert
2008 - Rosh Hashana for the Rest of Us
2008b - Top Ten
2009 - Higher
2009b - You're Late, You're Late, For a Very Important Date
2010 - What Do You Want to Fix?
2011 - Staying Awake on Rosh Hashana
2012 - What Matters Most

2nd question for your table....

The last week of the year can fix the entire past year. Like tonight - make it a "perfect" Friday night and it will correct all of the imperfect Friday nights of the year. Be happy tomorrow and all the sad/grumpy/angry Saturdays of the year will vanish.

So.... if you could undo or redo one decision or one action or one day of this past year, what would it be?

While you're pondering that, I'd like to wish you and yours a sweet, healthy, happy, holy, uplifting, beautiful, interesting, stimulating, amazing 5774. L'shana tova. May you be written and sealed in the Book of Life.

Shabbat Shalom
