    Happy Jewish New Year, everyone!

    It is year 5777 -- no kidding. We celebrate the end of the (Jewish) year and the start of the new one over the next two days. It is a really powerful time of assessment, reflecting on the year past, taking stock in where we are in our lives, and thinking about how we can be a good person moving forward, during our short time on this planet, including how to facilitate transformation personally and in our communities.

    For those too sick or homebound to go out but still want to "attend" the Jewish New Year services, which can be very powerful, you can listen live online (livestream audio only) to Congregation Dorshei Tzedek's services (in the Boston MA USA area). Link found below. It is led by the wonderful progressive rabbi, Rabbi Toba. L'shanah tovah! ("For a good year!")

    Interesting that (some?) Jewish people think that the Earth is year 5,777.

    Our calendar says it's 2016 and yet the earth is not 2,016 years old!
