I believe you understand Rosh Hashanah’s miracle of renewal, creation, and rejuvenation.


By the Grace of G-d


Dear Friend,


I’ve been hoping to get in touch with you because some very big days are upon us!


Starting with Rosh Hashanah next week (Sept. 6-8), when the sounds, tastes, and feelings of Rosh Hashanah will stir our memories.


Rosh Hashanah, literally translating to 'head of the year', is the Jewish New Year, starting on the first day of Tishrei — the Jewish calendar's first month. ... As of 2021, the two-day celebration marks the start of the year 5781 on the Jewish calendar.


The heart-stirring blasts of the shofar. The crispy apple and sticky honey. The delicious brisket dinner shared with family and friends. Wishing each other a Happy, Healthy, and Sweet New Year.


These are all part of Rosh Hashanah’s awesome splendor.  G-d’s renewal of creation. The new power we are each given to change the world. And our promise to use it all for good.


I'm writing to you because I believe you understand Rosh Hashanah’s miracle of renewal, creation, and rejuvenation -- and what it means for the Jewish people, and what it means for all of humanity!


I'm asking you to donate now to the Staten Island Holocaust Center in honor of Rosh Hashanah, to help us accomplish our goal to fight antisemitism by educating our children about the holocaust.
