Happy New Year

Hello folks,

just a quick note this time: the Hebrew new year starts this Saturday, September 19 (more precisely: Friday, September 18, after sunset). In case I don’t get the chance to blog anything in the next few days, please allow me to wish you all – Jewish, non-Jewish, religious, non-religious, whoever, wherever and whatever you may be –

Happy new year! Let תש”ע (the Hebrew representation of the year; amounts to year number 5770) be a happy and successful year to all of you.

Did you hear the joke about the Hebrew talking about the difference in calendars between Chinese and Hebrew. Supposedly the chinese calendar only says it's around year 4,000, while the Hebrew calendar says it's almost year 6,000. Supposedly the Hebrews call this difference the "dark ages" because thats when they got Chinese food!
