Time for the Holidays!

No photography today. I’m too busy. Wow, never thought I’d say that about photography, but this evening Roshย Hashanah, the Jewish new year, begins at sundown. I am busy cleaning, cooking and preparing for this and the other holidays to follow. We will feast on apples and honey and honey cakes for the next three weeks as we wish each other a sweet and prosperous new year. I will go missing for a few days each week as we celebrate and observe the holy days, and I will get behind in visiting your blogs. It can’t be helped. I will be back in a few days and I’m sure there will be lots to tell. Until then, L’Shana Tovah!

  1. Mmmm! From visiting the related articles, Rosh Hashanah sounds like a delicious holiday.
    Good luck preparing all the food. And, have a happy new year!

  2. L’Shana Tovah to you as well (I hope I have spelt it right) what does it mean?
    Have a great time with your celebrations. I know we shall all miss you but will shall start looking forward to hearing from you again very soon love P

    1. L’Shana Tovah = to (of ‘for’) a Happy Year! We will have a wonderful time with plenty of delicious foods, then I’ll be back next week to fill you in on the details!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by Patrecia. I always appreciate it. Have a great weekend.

  3. I am so jealous! I am sure you will be feasting well. When I was in college I dated a Jewish guy. I loved the food during the holidays.

    I actually was going to make some Matzo ball soup tonight.

    Have a great holiday!

    Cheers,
    Louise

    1. As we are enjoying our Matzo Ball soup tonight, I’ll think of you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by, and for subscribing to this blog. I am very appreciative and hope I never disappoint. Have a great weekend.

  4. Happy Jewish New Year my friend. Sounds like a lot of good food, great gatherings, laughter and warm hugs are coming your way. May be you can share this Beautiful holiday with us one day. Celebrations like these brings out the best in us. Stay blessed always.

    1. Thank you IT. I will try to write some about Rosh Hoshannah this week. We were in a new place this year so it was a little different for us, more subdued, but special none-the-less. Thank you for stopping by and for leaving such a sweet comment. Blessings to you.

  5. Cecelia, I thought about you this morning when I read about food for the Jewish New Year in the Kansas City Star food section and its account of the appropriateness of honey and apples to symbolize a sweet New Year. I look forward to your writing as your holiday permits. I am late with this so you don’t need to reply to my comment. As the sun goes down on your Rosh Hashanah, may you have a meaningful ten days for reflection.

    1. thank you for your thoughts and kind words, Barbara. Our holidays started off wonderfully. The next is Yom Kippur, but that is a fast day so no food. I pray this wil be a good year for us all.

      1. There certainly were many “reflections” in your most recent series of photos… subconscious inclusion perhaps? I truly miss the Jewish holidays, even though I’m not of that tradition. I grew up in Montreal, which has a large Jewish community, and the spirit of the festivals and holidays spilled over to everyone, as did the honey cakes made by friends’ moms!

        1. We were in Montreal one winter and loved the community there. It is quite large. Of course it is also quite cold. I hope to visit again but in the summer. Thanks for stopping by.
