It’s Rosh Hashana, Judaism’s New Year, so here are some Jewish headlines to ring in Year 5772:
- –In a TriBeCa Park, a Question of Law and a Religious Symbol (New York Times)
- –Make this the year of the apology (JTA)
- –As Obama’s Jewish numbers plummet, AJC poll shows U.S. Jews “grumpy” (AJC)
- –In Brooklyn, a Hasidic walking tour opens ultra-Orthodox Jewish life to outsiders (CNN)
Coincidentally, today is also the start of Navratri, Hinduism’s 9-day festival celebrating the mother goddess.
So, Shana Tova to the Jews, Happy Navratri to the Hindus, and happy birthday to my kid! (Religion reporter DNA, what can I say?)
