I am still learning about the Jewish faith, but I also want to wish all of you a Happy New Year.

Could I ask a question? The Apples and honey I saw on tv today. Is that part of a ceramony or is it triditional something that you eat?

The apple dipped in honey symbolizes the wish for a "sweet and healthy year".

Default 5773

We Jews will begin our 5773rd year on this earth! Who would have believed this possible? If anyone had told Abraham that his people would be around this long he probably would have been astounded. Imagine, we did this without beheading anyone, without a single suicide bomber, without kidnapping and murdering school children, without slaughtering Olympic athletes, and without flying airplanes into skyscrapers.

We lasted this long despite 400 years as slaves in Egypt , 40 years of wandering in the desert, the mighty Roman army who nailed us to ten thousand crosses; despite the best efforts of the Christian crusaders, the Spanish Inquisition, Hitler's third Reich, Stalin's gulags, Arab wars of annihilation, 100 years of Arab terrorism, and 800 hate-filled UN resolutions!

How did we Jews do it? We did it by concentrating our efforts on education, love of family, faith, hard work, helping one another and a passionate dedication to life no matter what evil befell us! We hung in there in hope the rest of the world would one day overcome it's hatreds, jealousies, violence and join us in a life of cooperation and mutual respect. We're not there yet, but we're still hopeful. And when we enter our places of worship this week, this is what we'll pray for with all the strength in our hearts.

Best wishes for a New Year filled with Health, Happiness, Laughter, Success, Joy, and Kindness and may this coming year bring Peace and Security to Israel and to the Jewish Communities in the Diaspora (the body of Jews living in countries outside Israel). 5773 and counting!

O F C'er,

When one sees the list in writing, you have a hell of a point! We may have kown about all those trials but to see them written down makes it (to me at least) amazing the Jews are not only still around but are as prosperous as they are.

Don't know if this is true or not so maybe you can fill me in. I remember someone saying that when the population got to the point where we really needed last names, it was the Jews who came up with last names such as Gold and Silver. True or not, sure seems appropriate.

Happy Rosh Hashanah

Just curious, where does year 1 fit on a timeline? Does it start with Adam, Abraham, Jacob?

green_rd,
The year number on the Jewish calendar represents the number of years since creation, calculated by adding up the ages of people in the Bible back to the time of creation.
