    Thank you, SheEagle. Of course, we celebrated
    Rosh Hashanah starting on Friday evening, and
    it went through last evening until sunset. Some,
    including my synagogue, only celebrate one day.

    We had three shofars at our celebration on Rosh
    Hashannah, and each one was blown in succes-
    sion--the larger first, the next smaller, and the
    smallest. It was beautiful, as the three men stood
    in different parts of the synagogue, echoing the
    others' sounds.

    Hearing the shofar is, indeed, both beautiful and
    solemn on these days, because they begin the
    Days of Awe and reflection--the days leading
    up to Yom Kippur.

    Our whole congregation went down to a river after
    services yesterday, and we each held a stone as
    one of our pastors reminded us that as we ask
    for forgiveness, our Lord takes the sin and casts
    it into the "sea," never to be remembered again.
    He told us, then, to throw our stones into the
    water and realize that we would not be able to
    find that stone again; so it is with forgiven sin.

    During the Days of Awe, we are continuing to
    examine our lives, to be extra diligent in asking
    our God to help us find hidden sin, confess them
    to Him, and to confesss them to others as
    needed. These days are both difficult and
    refreshing, cutting and healing. They are good
    days. 8o)

    Indeed we have been celebrating Rosh Hashana. Last year, it was a bittersweet new year and it is even much more so this year thinking about the 11th. But also thinking about the almost 600 Jews who have been murdered in the past two years by Arafat and the Palestinian terrorists, the way America has turned her back on Israel under the leadership of GW Bush and Colin Powell, makes it even more Bitter.

    But we shall still dip apples in the honey in hopes that God will bring us a sweeter new year.

    We also look forward to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), which will be a day of repentance and justice. We look forward to revival within our hearts and lives and to justice for those who have terrorized Israel, America, and the world.

    Shana-Tovah,
