Rosh Hashana Sermon- The Basics
Recently met with a dear friend who told me that he thought we had an awesome synagogue and nice people, and then he hit me with this:
“Although I am Jewish, I have no idea what the High holidays are, can’t relate at all to the Hebrew, don’t feel connected to God, if there is such a thing, and feel quite uncomfortable at services.”

Puxsatawney Phil has seen his shadow and from this quaint American custom we are told to get ready to face 6 more weeks of winter. In the Jewish calendar we have just celebrated TuB’shvat which lets us know that the sap in the trees is beginning to move and that Spring cannot be to far behind. This year at Temple Israel we celebrated TuB’shvat twice, once for the adults, and once for our family education program.
