While our focus at JewishHolidaysInABox.com is on providing fun, easy ways to celebrate Jewish holidays, we also like to share extraordinary pieces that nourish us spiritually.
So, as we blend traditions for honey-dunked apples with reflection and contemplation, here is a link to a splendid piece by Wilderness Torah about the first day of Tishrei. It starts this way:
“The moment provides a cosmic pause between the year before and year ahead, in breath and out breath, fruit and seed, harvesting and sowing, dry and wet.”
