This evening marks the start of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. This week we celebrate (read: eat a lot) Next week we get to fast and repent for our sins.
In honor of Rosh Hashana, you will not hear from me this Friday. Stay tuned next week for a recap of all of the great food my mother-in-law has prepared. I am certain it will be excessive, and I will have a lot to say.
