I might not be of the Judaic faith but please allow me to extend the same wish to all.

In the hope that one day we might learn to be brothers and sisters who respect each other. Shalom.

Shana Tova to all members celebrating the Jewish New Year. The name of the holiday Rosh Hashana literally translates to "Head of the Year".

A very beautiful sentiment. Thank you and Happy New Year. May peace come to all.

To celebrate, I just booked my annual trip on Delta JFK-TLV. I was going to transfer in Toronto or London or Frankfurt, but the fares from JFK were nearly the same. And I can now travel nonstop like a mensch!!

I feel a lot of the strife and tension is manipulated and promoted by the leaders and elite classes. They profit from their war machines, prison industry. Divide and conquer.

And thank you for words.

One of my co-workers who is from Israel visits every summer. This go round she flew out of IAD on Air France heading to Israel with a connection in Paris and the return was KLM through Amsterdam. She enjoyed all her flights immensly!

I believe even US has a flight or two to TLV.

We are all a family here at A-Net and I thank you for your heartfelt wishes. This shows we have a chance at finally bridging the gap and differences. Here's to a bigger, better, prosperous, peaceful and hopefully new year!

Well, low and behold look who tweeted happy new year to all Jews.

I wonder how that fits into the "Rogue Regime" "Tyrants of Tehran" "Zone Of Immunity" AIPAC and Israel story line.

Oh and they have Jews serving in Parliament which has been reserved SINCE 1906.

I was wondering if I'm the only Jew who pays no attention to the High Holidays. I was born and raised Jewish, but consider myself agnostic (despite being a Kohen).

As a matter of fact, my dad and I are arguing a bit...I'm planning on going out next Friday night with friends.

Time changes everything. Just keep the door propped- open enough to keep your foot it. When you are ready and have experienced enough life, you will return to Torah naturally. I used to feel the same way when I was your age. You will see.It is part of the enrichment of your soul right now to do other things. Enlightenment will come and you will suddenly find yourself hungry for Torah. Shana Tovah!

Or, he might not. Every individual takes his own path. No one path is right for everyone.

I'm from the Levi Tribe, we were number 2 and we try harder    Do not feel embarrassed. It's what's in your heart that counts. I don't go to Schul anymore, (you have to pony up some serius bucks) at least in the USA. I've actually worked on Rosh Ha Shonna. However, on Yom Kippur, I usually take off. Next week I'll be on holiday/vacation but will not fly or travel on YK. Only if it was an emergency would I do it. This year the high holidays are the earliest I can ever remember. There have been other years where they fell in early September but never within two days of Labor Day! For those not familiar with the Jewish Holidays, they go by the Lunar calendar and like Easter are at different dates each year. For those of us who like a later start, in 2016 Rosh Ha Shonna won't start till October 6! I have never been a "holiday" person" especially the past few years since my dad passed and my mom has advanced Alzheimers. I make my own holidays and swim sort of against the tide of conformity.

Once I find a job, I will not work those days - unless the job I find involves the possibility of saving a life. Example, last night at Civil Air Patrol, we adults after the meeting were at our weekly after meeting followed by the beer/dinner, and I was asked what would happen if I was called out for a mission on Yom Kippur. I told a story that a Hebrew School teacher told to me about when she was still living in Israel. It was Yom Kippur, and everyone was in shul. The Rabbis found out that the Arabs were invading and pretty much said, "Now is the time to fight for our land, our families, and our lives. Put down the Machzor and get your weapons." I explained that the preservation of human life is above and beyond all commandments, rituals, etc., and that soldiers, doctors, those who need to work are commanded to, and are even commanded to not fast.

I myself, as a result of medications I have been on my whole life am forbidden from fasting. But when I was little and my dad was a store manager, there were only two holidays on which he outright refused to work - Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur.

Scripture and Talmud both make it pretty clear that there is no law, not even the observance of Shabbat or of Yom Kippur, that can't be broken for the sake of saving a life.

Mostly true! There are a couple of exceptions (such as, you can't put another person's life in danger - against that person's will - to save your own life).

Yes. And after they are gone no holiday ever seems the same again. Thanksgiving and Pesach are hard on me.

Or tending to a sick/suffering animal or to attend to and bury the dead.

On occasion I find myself reflecting on our "chosen" purpose of Tikkun Olam in this existence and as usual I find the task overwhelming. There is so much evil and hatred in this world. A friend reminded me of something the Lubavitcher Rebbe said concerning this mitzvah;

"If you see what needs to be repaired and how to repair it, then you have found a piece of the world HASHEM has left for you to complete.

But, if you only see what is wrong and what is ugly in the world, then it is you yourself that needs repair."

Bud, the Jewish faith I think is a very interesting and intriguing way of life. MHO, you should embrace it. My wife (ne Cohen) and I have observed High Holidays (and Hannukah, and Pesach) for 10 years now (since we first started dating) and have done it ever since and will forever do it.

You were raised Jewish. Embrace it. Just my word of advice.  

Also, I'm a Catholic!

Shana Tova to all! L'CHIAM!!
