As you can probably tell, I love to write and tend to write long. Most blog postings are very short and I probably take too much of your time with these long posts, so here's a short one -
Wherever you are - may you be blessed with the blessings of home. May you gather your family around you and enjoy each precious moment. May you be granted a full year of life and health and happiness and may the State of Israel and the Jewish people be granted a year of peace, a year free from hatred and violence and may God bless us with leaders who are wise, compassionate, and just.
Shana tova - from Elie and me.
