Happy New Year (Rosh Hashanah) to our Jewish sisters and brothers!

Rosh Hashanah, L' Shanah Tovah Tikatevu

Shehecheyanu - blessing of praise
Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam,
shehechehyanu, v’kiy’manu, v’higianu laz’man hazeh.

Our praise to You, our Eternal G-d, Sovereign of all:
for giving us life, sustaining us, and enabling us to reach this season.

Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset tonight.
Happy New Year to all our Jewish sisters and brothers,
and richest blessings for the High Holy Days ahead,
the Days of Awe, which conclude with the Great Day of Atonement,
Yom Kippur.

Here is a lovely, short video with some helpful commentary.
