Blessings & Greetings for the Jewish New Year

Shalom friends, Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year, is a time of hope, renewal and promise that we will try to be better next year. Rosh HaShanah is the first of the High Holy Days and it is celebrated on the first two days of the Hebrew month of Tishrei. In the Hebrew Bible Rosh HaShanah is called Zikhron Teru’ah, meaning a remembrance of Shofar Blowing, as mentioned in Leviticus 23:24-

” דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֵאמֹר: בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ, יִהְיֶה לָכֶם שַׁבָּתוֹן–זִכְרוֹן תְּרוּעָה, מִקְרָא-קֹדֶשׁ.”

” Speak unto the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns, a holy convocation.”

During Rosh HaShanah we recite special blessings. After the Kiddush, Netilat Yadim, and breaking Challah, we say the following blessings for a Sweet New Year:

Apples & Honey

Apple &Honey- We take a slice of apple, dip it in honey and then we say:

” ברוך אתה ה’ ,אלוהינו מלך העולם, בורא פרי העץ”

” Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha-olam, borei p’ri ha-eitz.”

” We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the tree. “

After that we say:

” יהי רצון מלפנייך ה, אלוהינו ואלוהיי אבותינו , שתחדש עלינו שנה טובה ומתוקה “.

” Yehi ratzon milfanecha, Adonai Eloheinu v’Elohei”

Avoteinu, shetchadesh aleinu shanah tovah um’tukah”.

“May it be Your will, Eternal our G-d, that this be a good and sweet year for us”.

Pomegranate - Pomegranates are eaten on the second night of Rosh Hashanah . We eat the Pomegranate for 2 main reasons: 1. In the Hebrew Bible, the Land of Israel is praised for its pomegranates.

2. According to Jewish tradition, the pomegranate contains exactly 613 seeds, similar to G-d’s 613 Mitzvoth.

Flash and fabulous shining sequin cocktail dresses never go wrong for holiday season. Get your shine on in a sweet short sequin cocktail dress with a gilded finish that’ll dazzle in any light. For when a little sparkle goes a long way, go for a sequin cocktail dress in regal gold for a festive take!

Throughout the formal and prom world, a major change is occurring. Country and vintage lace designs are less common, and instead we’re seeing more elegant and avant-garde silhouettes being used. Dress designers are not afraid to take design to a new level, cleverly using minimal lace in the most unexpected places. An entire evening dress is covered in a rich black lace and also features an interesting scalloped collar.

Some of my favorite lace gown creations are from the ever-changing and awe-inspiring designs in bridal industry. Many of the bridal gowns are lace from neckline to hemline, with lace fabrics ranging from the extremely delicate Alençon lace to the almost geographical, cut-out, modern laces on classic mermaid and column styles. hailmaryjanes top1sexvideos citybarbeques themeinfos apptippers tiavat top1xnxx topfreeblackporn blackhatoffers top5xnxx malehealthsreview arturofirenzes modernsharps top1xxx

Take the pomegranate and say:

” יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ ה’ אֱלֹהינוּ וֵאלֵֹהי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁנִּהְיֶה מְלֵאִים מִצְוֹת כָּרִמּוֹן”

” May it be Your will, Lord our G-d and G-d of our Fathers, that our merits increase like the seeds of a pomegranate”.

Another special custom is to eat the head of a fish or a ram. After the head is eaten we say-

” יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ ה’ אֱלֹהינוּ וֵאלֵֹהי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁנִּהְיֶה לְרֹאשׁ וְלֹא לְזָנָב”

” Yehi ratzon milfanecha , Adonai eloheinu v’elohei avoteinu , she-nih’yeh le’rosh velo le’zanav”

” May it be Your will, Lord our G d and the G d of our fathers, that we be a head and not a tail.”

During the 2 days of Rosh Hashannah there are many traditional greetings:

The most common greeting is : Shanah Tova U’metukah- A good and Sweet Year- שנה טובה ומתוקה

Pomegranates & Shofar

On the first night of Rosh Hashanah after the evening prayer we say:

“לאלתר לחיים טובים ולשלום”.

” Le’Alter LeChaim Tovim U’Leshalom”.

” May you immediately be inscribed and sealed for a Good Year”.

Another greeting:

“כתיבה וחתימה טובה”

Ketiva Ve’chatima Tovah “

” May You Be Written and Sealed for a Good Year.”

I would like to wish all of you a wonderful year, a year filled with joy, love, happiness, health and good deeds…

Happy New Year – Shanah Tova – שנה טובה
