Rosh Hashanah 5766
The Jewish New Year -- Rosh Hashanah -- begins at sunset tonight and ends at nightfall on Wednesday
At the beginning of this High Holiday season, I will slice an apple and dip it into honey ... a Jewish tradition observed as we ask that God grant us a sweet new year.
Below is the transliteration for the blessing accompanying this gesture of hope and gratitude:
Barukh atah Adonai, Elohaynu, melekh ha-olam
Blessed are you, Lord, our God, king of the universe
Borei p’riy ha-eitz. (Amein)
who creates the fruit of the tree. (Amen)
Y'hee ratzon mee-l'fanekha, Adonai Elohaynu v'elohey avoteynu
May it be Your will, Lord our God and God of our ancestors
Sh'tichadeish aleinu shanah tovah um'tuqah.
that you renew for us a good and sweet year.
L' Shanah Tovah!
