Shana Tova Umetuka – 5778

Anne's Opinions

Shana Tova!

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, begins tonight, and lasts for 2 days, until sundown on Friday night.  This year, since Rosh Hashana falls on Thursday and Friday, we then run straight into Shabbat, giving us a 3-day festival (so I won’t be online again until Sunday at the earliest).  The Jewish year follows the lunar calendar, and the number counts the number of years since Creation. This year we will mark the beginning of 5778.

To quote from previous Rosh Hashana posts, Rosh Hashana is not marked by great parties and merry-making for the Jewish New Year is also known as the Day of Judgement, the day when all humans are held accountable before Heaven for their good deeds and bad, and their fate for the coming year is decided. A good part of the two days of the festival is spent in emotional and uplifting…

Remarks by President Trump to the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly

United Nations
New York, New York

10:04 A.M. EDT

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Mr. Secretary General, Mr. President, world leaders, and distinguished delegates: Welcome to New York. It is a profound honor to stand here in my home city, as a representative of the American people, to address the people of the world.

As millions of our citizens continue to suffer the effects of the devastating hurricanes that have struck our country, I want to begin by expressing my appreciation to every leader in this room who has offered assistance and aid. The American people are strong and resilient, and they will emerge from these hardships more determined than ever before.

Fortunately, the United States has done very well since Election Day last November 8th. The stock market is at an all-time high — a record. Unemployment is at its lowest level in 16 years, and because of our regulatory and other reforms, we have more people working in the United States today than ever before. Companies are moving back, creating job growth the likes of which our country has not seen in a very long time. And it has just been announced that we will be spending almost $700 billion on our military and defense

The Oldest Deli in Montreal

Dispatches From the Copy Dept

Without knowing the history of the word, everybody pretty much pronounces “delicatessen” the same way. But one day it hit me: “delicate essen”. I thought it must be some kind of German play-on-words brought over from the old country. As it turns out, I wasn’t too far off. The abbreviated colloquialism “deli” is only about 65 years old, whereas a couple of the restaurants we refer to as delis – at least the ones in Montreal – are closer to 90. The oldest deli in the world predates the word itself, dating back to 18th century Germany. Dallmayr was more of a grocery store, then, and still exists today as a purveyor of gourmet delights and coffee.

The word “delicatessen” is, of course, German, from the late 1800’s, by way of French and Latin. But the food we ordinarily seek out at a deli today is anything but delicate.

7 Chabad Rabbis signed onto a letter stating, “there is no need to seek rabbinic approval prior to reporting” all forms of abuse.
By COLlive reporter
A group of Chabad rabbis signed a proclamation addressing abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community, alluding to its effects that have resulted in multiple deaths due to drug overdoses and suicides over the past year alone in Jewish communities.
“The existence of child sexual abuse and other forms of child abuse which occurs in some of our communities, resulting in a number of tragic suicides as well as other physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual consequences,” they wrote.
The rabbis admitted that not enough was done in the past to tackle the issue. “We recognize that in light of past experiences our communities could have responded in more responsible and sensitive ways to help victims and hold perpetrators accountable.”
