Shana Tova 5771!

https://1tess.wordpress.comL’ shana tova: Happy new year!
Challah and honey, sweet figs and apple, hopes for the new year…
Early this summer, I told myself that I would watch for the last firefly of the season.
About three weeks ago, I think I saw my last firefly, before the middle of August. But you know? I did not mark the event. At the time, I did not know it was the last one I’d look at; there certainly were others, but I didn’t see them. Since then bits of my life have intervened.

Happy New Year 5769!

L'Shana Tova!Dipping apples and challah in honey symbolizes our wish for sweetness and goodness during the coming year. This year, we had a new fruit to dip: an Asian pear.
