With the long summer days coming to an end and the leaves beginning to change colors, it is time for us to begin preparing for the cold season. As much as we love getting to finally enjoy pumpkin flavored everything and preparing for the holidays as they quickly approach, the drop in temperature means an increase of the risk of getting sick.

Kids back in school. Pumpkins popping up in stores. Sights that hasten thoughts of autumn. The same is true for campaign ads. Temperatures will get cooler; leaves will change colors and Virginia’s polls will open for voting. There is an election for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and the House of Delegates on November 2, 2021.

The year is 2021, or 5782 on the Jewish calendar. That means that the first children of the new millennia, those born in the year 2000, are legally all grown up. It means that the year 2015, that showed “the future” in the movie “Back to the Future 2” is already in the past.

This time of year, Jews around the world observe many of the holiest days in the Jewish calendar. Last week, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year (5782) was ushered in. This week, Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) will be observed from sundown Wednesday, September 15 until sundown Thursday, September 16. The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are referred to as the Days of Awe — a time when Jews engage in prayer, acts of charity, and repentance.

The high holidays, and Rosh Hashanah in particular, is one of my favorite times of the year. As a child, the school system in Israel always focuses on the holidays and the new year – making cards for our families, decorations for the Sukkah, learning the meaning of the holiday and the accompanying customs. With the proximity to the beginning of the school year, you can feel the focus on new beginnings, fresh starts, and many wishes. At home, there is a feeling of holiness and knowing that it’s a special time of year — the meal preparations, the festive clothing, and the changing breeze as fall starts to knock on our door (climate change aside...).

Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) will begin at sundown on Monday, September 6 and end at sundown on Wednesday, September 8, ushering in the Hebrew year of 5782.

The reason to donate blood is simple: Pikuach Nefesh (Saving a Life) a fundamental  principle in Jewish law and a core Jewish value. The pandemic’s impact has caused blood supply and donations to drop to a dangerously low level. Now more than ever, our commUNITY needs help from the J family by donating blood to ensure blood products are readily available for patients.
