Rosh HaShana (The Jewish New Year) of 5775 begins at sundown on this coming Wednesday, September 24th.
Most folks think that Rosh HaShana marks the creation of the world. It does NOT. It actually counts the 5775 years since the creation of Adam and Eve.
May you have a Sweet and Happy New Year!

LSW: Sali, here posting for Yaakov. You may have noticed that the blog has not been updated till now. Yaakov had a mini stroke and was hospitalized, but is now fine and back home and doing cartoons (this being his first). There was no damage, but he is still very tired and needs rest. I have been trying to make him rest, but it is a loosing battle. In any case here is his new cartoon.

According to the Jewish Virtual Library:
"In 1945, roughly 1 million Jews lived peacefully in the various Arab states of the Middle East, many of them in communities that had existed for thousands of years. After the Arabs rejected the United Nations decision to partition Palestine and create a Jewish state, however, the Jews of the Arab lands became targets of their own governments’ anti-Zionist fervor. As Egypt’s delegate to the UN in 1947 chillingly told the General Assembly: “The lives of one million Jews in Muslim countries will be jeopardized by partition.” The dire warning quickly became the brutal reality."-more
