Nothing like being in a room full of like people to put you in the mood for letting go of your stress. We are not a dress up Synagogue, but everyone does look "cleaned up nice". I'm glad that I now have a better feeling about starting the new year.
I've put aside the fact that in two weeks time, I have had oral surgery, made some safety changes in a bathroom, spent a great deal of money on car repairs, and oh yes, had a major hurricane come to town. But I let go of it all at services tonight. I'm ready
for the year 5778 . So , L'Shanah Tovah everyone. Have a good and sweet new year.
