Shana tova!

Dear Friends,



The Jewish people commemorates today Rosh HaShana This Feast celebrates creation, the birthday of the universe when God created Adam and Eve and for this reason it is the head of the year, the new year of 5778 since creation.


As Rosh HaShana takes places during two days, we would like to invite you to join the Jewish community in prayer and joy by reading and reflecting on the texts that are used by the people of Israel:


Day one (21/ 09/ 2017):  Genesis 21: 1 – 34. On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the Torah reading focuses on Patriarch Isaac's birth.


Day Two (22/ 09/ 2017: Genesis 22: 1 – 24. The Torah reading for the second day of Rosh Hashanah discusses the Binding of Isaac.


שנה טובה, מתוקה ומברכת.

Shana Tova, metuca umevarechet.

A good, sweet and blessed year.
