Welcoming 5767!
Published on September 22, 2006 By Larry Kuperman In Current Events
Tonight being Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

L'Shanah Tovah! For a sweet year. Dip your apples in honey.

I included a link for anyone interested in the history and rituals.

Oh, I needed a picture of the Shofar being blown!

Since I do all the driving for my family, I'm going to ask Mrs. Moskowitz to blow the "shofar" tonight.

Seriously, L'Shanah Tovah to all.

It's not fair that Jewish people get two new years. I think I will stay up until midnight and drink champagne tonight. Happy New Year all.

L'Shanah Tovah to all.

I'll second that!


I dabbled with Judaism a few years ago...almost converted, actually.  I don't know what stopped me or changed my mind.  I just know that Judaism made a LOT more sense to me than Christianity.  Still does, in fact.

Happy New Year, Kupe!

Buddha, that joke was terrible......and I thought about making it!

Dharma, did you know that 5767 is anno mundi, meaning from the creation of the world? I don't accept creationism, I am a secularist, but its an interesting factoid, don't you think?

Thanks all for commenting.

There are many different “Bible” versions today claiming to be the Word of God. Each one tells us that it is the most reliable, most accurate, etc. etc.. But which of them is God’s Word? Since they all disagree with one another, we can’t possibly say that they all are. Can we? Are we to suppose that God has written more than one Bible and that he makes statements in one and then disagrees with himself in another? No, of course not. God only wrote one Bible. How, then, do we go about determining which “Bible” is the Bible? If we look to human opinion for the answer, we will find nearly as many opinions as we find people. One person will like one. Another person will prefer another. Yet a third person will assure us that it really doesn’t matter, telling us that any of them will do just fine. Since we aren’t interested in human opinion here, we need to look to scripture for help in resolving this issue. There are two questions that we will need to consider. (1) Which are the correct manuscripts?
(2) Which is the proper translation of those (the correct) manuscripts? Go to web site for answer. www.biblediscernment.com
