News Update: Offbeat Jewish News Edition

For us Rosh Hashana for Hebrew Year 5783 began on Sunday, 25 September 2022 and ended on Tuesday, 27 September 2022 and we made the best of it.

Though perhaps late, we love to share this writing of a ‘Jewish Young Professional’ who is not shy about dropping a sarcastic but also humorous overtone and who finds that Rosh Hashanah should suck more than secular New Year’s. Rosh Hashanah like being a liturgical marathon, though for us such service would only take about 3 hours (she and some others perhaps finding it much too long). But good luck, there’s some good food afterwards, making it a “happy” holiday,

CoViD affected every community. No matter how kind, warm, and well-intentioned the community, we all now have to find a way to get back on track. Concerning meals, we just had to be on our own, figuring out to have something that did not contribute to the pollution of this world.

At the European continent, some of us may be living far away from a synagogue where we can come together daily, so we have to do it with weekly services and meetings at homes of brothers and sisters. There we can enjoy the food which the host has prepared, and for whatever it may be we say ‘praise to Hashem’.

Jewish Young Professional

If you don’t blog about Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year), are you even a Jewish blogger? And yet, the Rosh Hashanah post I want to post is taking too long to write (timely blog content has never been my strong suit), so I’m doing a News Update post on 7 Jewish-related news stories (7 in honor of Shabbat, you know?) as my pseudo Rosh Hashanah post.

At this rate, I’ll post my real Rosh Hashanah post for Valentine’s Day. “Rosh Hashana 5777 | ראש השנה תשע’ז” by Lilachd is licensed under CC BY 2.0.

As always, I shall cover the amusing, light-hearted stories, not the important, controversial, or sad. Btw, I’m not covering any Rosh Hashanah/Sukkot inspirational message stuff. First off, I’m not feeling any of that and secondly, you can just google – it’s all over the internet. Unless otherwise noted, bolding in the…
