Rosh Hashanah 2020

Rosh Hashanah begins tonight! The much-maligned 2020 may not be over yet, but at least we’ve nearly made it through 5780. ;-)

Whatever 5781 brings, we hope it’s filled with good music,

good games,

satisfying journeys (real, virtual, or metaphorical),

good progress,

good relationships,

maybe a little magic,

safety and comfort in difficult times,


and of course, good books.

Shana tovah!
