Each time a Jewish holiday arrives, I think about centuries ago, in Jesus’ day, when Our Lord also observed these holy days. Sometimes, we Christians forget that Jesus was actively Jewish, that he lived for nearly 30 years with Mary and Joseph in an observant Jewish household, and that his faith was lived out daily there and with them. Remembering this brings up a wellspring of respect for the people who still, today, observe these holy days.

Peace, comfort, goodness, and light are wonderful blessings for anyone upon whom they rest. And today, I wish these things for all observing Rosh Hashanah, a New Year.

Shalom.

Peace.

Maureen
