Happy New year

Happy new year to everyone. We just came back from very nice, pretty crowded services. The kids have a lot of buds in the little Jewish world now, thanks to Sunday School and they actually sort of enjoy it.

it is our third Rosh Hashanah in Beijing and, I think our 20th together. Wow.

Rosh Hashanah has always made more sense to me as a new year because of the start of the school year, which is a time of optimism and a feeling that everyone can turn over a new leaf. With kids in school, that sense of September as the start of the year has returned. In China, we actually get to celebrate three new years, all of them different and unique n their own ways.
