Rosh Hashanah is a Time to Remember Tradition

As a child, I remember putting on my finest dress and going to Grandma and Poppy for Rosh Hashanah. Oh, the food. The table is set with a long line of never-ending delicacies. I of course “helped” Grandma cook. I remember the huge chopping bowls, the rounded chopping knives, the hand meat grinder that was used to chop the liver and help make the gefilte fish. I can even smell the matzoh ball soup cooking ever so slowly. Sadly when I go back to recapture some of those recipes, the food never tastes the same. That is the downside of learning the dangers of cooking with chicken fat. We have replaced those cholesterol-fill recipes with healthy cooking, replaced the chopping knives with a food processor, replaced the hand grinder with an electric one, and the slow cooker with a microwave. All done in the name of progress. But what good is progress if we forget our roots, values, and traditions along the way?

School texts now eliminate Christianity and Judaism and students are forced to pledge to Allah. As a former teacher, I remember teaching classes called religion where we explored and discovered how religious beliefs are so interwoven that it makes trying to separate the underlying values difficult. The purpose was to give an understanding to my students so when they grew up they would not demonize or continually misunderstand traditions. I felt it was important to know all religions. It is the lack of understanding of religious values that keep us separated. If you do not understand heritage, it is almost impossible to understand motivations. 

As we prayed in the temple, I remember asking G-d for the forgiveness of my sins but also thanking G-d that we lived in America where I would not have to suffer the atrocities bestowed upon the Jews of the past. I felt safe at peace, at home.

Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year, 5781 begins at sundown on Monday, Sept 6th. Why 5781? Because the Jewish calendar begins at the dawn of man, BC (Before Christ).

The Jewish HOLIDAYS are never the same days every year because the Jewish calendar is based on the LUNAR (moon) cycles with 13 months each 28 days. 

Rosh Hashanah is a quieter holy day time celebrating the creation of the world, lasting 10 days and ending with Yom Kippur aka the day of Atonement. Yom Kippur is the holiest day whereby Jews all over the world fast, pray for forgiveness, and ask G-d to be written in the book of life for another year.

During this week the Torah (Jewish holy scroll) is read and the passage tells of the time when Moses delivered to Jews to Canaan (later called Israel). When Moses left to get the Ten Commandments, he did not return in a timely manner. No cell phones, so calling to say he will be late is out of the question.

The Jews fearful of Moses’ demise abandoned G-d and made false idols aka the golden calf and began worshiping the golden calf. When Moses returned with the Ten Commandments, G-d told Moses the people must pay for their sins of worshiping a false idol. So for forty more years, the Jews were forced to roam the desert.   

Moses replaced the Ten Commandments but was never allowed into the promised land. Instead, the people were told that they must choose. They must choose a life with G-d in the promised land or darkness by wandering in the desert. They choose G-d and Joshua led the Jews into Canaan. The Shofar (Rams Horn) is played to begin Rosh Hashanah and to end Yom Kippur.

Today I feel we are back to the beginning. G-d is with us but only if we follow his path. Today I feel that we are being asked to choose. Choose the path of life with morality and G-d or life with darkness worshiping man and government. I fear that the Afghanistan disaster was planned. This plan is filled with lies and deceit that will lead us down the path of darkness. Following the Regime to me is following the golden calf. The good news is Americans are realizing the golden calf is hollow.

As we learned in history the road to freedom is never easy or fair. But we are blessed. We live in America and Americans will not give up their freedom with ease. This week I will pray. I will pray not only for myself and my family but for America. I know we are strong and I know now is the time to face the uncertainty together.

“L’shana tovah”: is the way Jews greet each other on Rosh Hashanah with the Hebrew phrase “L’shana tovah,” which translates to “for a good year.” I wish you all “L’shana tovah” and may you all be written in the Book of Life.

My life and work experiences have given me an in-depth understanding of education and its effect on our students, economy, and country. My focus as an educator is connecting the dots. My business experiences in marketing brought me to multiple industries like telecommunication, insurance, real estate, mortgages, financial, fashion, Wall Street, Main Street. Here I learned that everything is connected. Nothing is random. Everything has a plan. All plans are based on lies. I believe that applying the knowledge is power. You can be a champion or a victim; you can’t be both. Ask yourself: Is America worth saving? If yes, then what will you help save the republic? Doing nothing is affirmation.

Which Part of Your Genetic Makeup is Jekyll, and Which is Hyde?

Beal warns us the coronavirus vaccines could cause serious illness for which there is no cure, and they could cause weird mutations in the natural world which we cannot control – which perhaps we are already seeing as we move from delta, to mu to nu… and possibly soon needing to use the Klingon alphabet. There’s a lot that could go wrong, as a result of genetic changes brought about by the lab-made sequences in the vaccines…

The Great Coup of 2020 and the New American State

Here we are, ten short years later, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has become the official platform of the Democratic Party. Their hatred of our country is no longer fringe – it is now mainstream, and it controls the White House, as well as both chambers of Congress. We are not a democracy. We are not a Democratic Republic either. We are a banana republic, with Joe Biden as our Banana in Chief…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #4

I’m trying to save my husband’s life! Please, help me. What can be done to keep my husband from being put on a ventilator? – If I have T-cells in my body after recovering from COVID, is there any chance of me unknowingly being a carrier of COVID and giving it to my unvaccinated elderly parents? – I heard Dr. McCullough say that once you’ve had Covid19, you cannot get it again. Does that include all variants, ie, Delta?

We are heading full-speed towards an economic meltdown. A recession even. We have no budget for fiscal year 2022, and do not expect one to come anytime soon. The federal government is likely headed towards a shutdown here in the next three weeks. Have you tried shopping lately? Notice how the shelves are much less stocked than usual?

Hydrocarbon Energy is the ‘Gift That Keeps On Giving’

Hydrocarbon Energy is the ‘Gift That Keeps On Giving’

The Left has this idea of better times before hydrocarbon energy. It is a ridiculous and dangerous fantasy. The number one tool of a doctor in the civil war was a saw. The number one tool of a dentist at that time was a pair of pliers. Our view of nature is distorted because of the comfort afforded us by fossil fuels. If we could live the life of the typical person of 1800 for only a week, virtually all of us would want to get back to the here and now as soon as possible…

First, They Came for the Trump Supporters, and I Did Not Speak Out…

As wishing death on anyone who disagrees with you becomes the “new normal,” the next new normal is violence. I have seen media references to “rounding up” anti-vaxers, Trump supporters, and anti-illegal immigration activists. From rounding them up to eventually killing them is a slippery slope. Just study the history of Germany in the 1930s. At the bottom of the slippery slope, we are at Dachau…

My David and Goliath Moment Against the Oregon Medical Board

My David and Goliath Moment Against the Oregon Medical Board

I challenge every doctor and nurse, and all medical staff, to stand for truth, to defy the crookedness of rogue medical boards and hospital CEOs whose testimony is rottenness to their souls. You may recall that David slew the giant. In the end, my reputation means nothing. What counts most is integrity. “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

Taking The Fight to the Employer or School – COVID Questions & Exemptions

Taking The Fight to the Employer or School – COVID Questions & Exemptions

What resources exist for employees who want to politely decline to use an experimental medical vaccine without risking the loss of their job? What questions can I demand my employer answer in order to satisfy the legal requirements for informed consent? With treatment options available, can my employer mandate that I get the vaccine or threaten me with termination?

The Retro WWII Uniform Just Doesn’t Fit General Milley

The CJCS has historically been more of a behind-the-scenes counselor to the president on all matters involving the U.S. military. But that’s not the case with Mark Milley. Milley sees himself as something akin to a mythical knight in shining armor mounted on his trusty steed, sword in hand as he stands alone and firm in defense of the republic…
