Tonight is Rosh Hashanah, the start of the Jewish year 5770. Storms are predicted for tomorrow evening. I can’t ever recall storms on Rosh Hashanah, just intense heat. Likely we’ll get both.
(The gas technician is here. The part arrived by messenger, but the private technician didn’t know what to do and offered to temporarily reinstall the hagaz the way it had been before. Fortunately (or not) I got hold of the technician from the gas company and he explained over the phone. So we will safely enjoy hot soup tomorrow night (God willing). The technician (and we) don’t understand why they insist on a brass pipe from the gas line to the hagaz, but allow a rubber one from the hagaz. Sigh.)
My wishes for the new year:
May we all have a year of peace, on a personal, community, national and international level.
May all of our children, including kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, return home safely.
May we have nachat (comfort) from our children.
May we have a year of health, growth, rain, and prosperity.
May all of our prayers be answered “letova,” for the benefit of all.
Many thanks to readers, commenters, and fellow bloggers for your friendship and support in 5769. Looking forward to more in the coming year.
