Rosh Hashanah (ראש השנה), the Jewish New Year, is this Friday night. My wife an I are flying to St. Louis tomorrow morning, to spend the weekend with her family. Blogging will be light this Friday and also I won’t be able to blog Monday AM until after about 11AM (EST).

In any event…

Google has put up a Google Doodle with a Shofar in it. The Shofar is typically blown during Rosh Hashanah services. Aish HaTorah has a good article on Symbolism of the Shofar.

Happy New Year to all you Jews. 🙂

    Hi Barry,

    I’m a Buddhist but I’ve always been interested in the Jewish faith and traditions. I like these types of posts because it helps me learn more about other cultures. Helpful trivia like the traditional greeting for whatever would be cool.

    It would me great to know what people are talking about be able to say things like Mazal Tov in appropriate situations. (Sorry… I grew up in the mid west)
