l'shanah tovah

Well here we are, another year has passed in the Jewish calendar, and what do I have to show for it? The last year has been intense yet completely gratifying. There have been some major life changes for me, though some of them tough and heartbreaking, I look to the past with gratitude and toward the future with hope and optimism. The rabbi's sermon today spoke of the constant growth and rebuilding that we have to do, and by golly, am I just a little plant finding my roots. Each day is a wonderful day, and I'm so excited to find what this year brings me.

rosh1 Traditionally, Jews eat apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah in hopes of a sweet new year. And according to Jewish mysticism, the apple may represent the feminine aspect to G-d! Neat right? Yummy apples and a healthy dose of religious feminism all in one.

I wore this outfit last week and felt incredibly witchy in it, I mean how could I not? When paired with the ever symbolic apple, I feel fabulous, feminine, and totally heroic.

  1. Totally agree with Lisa! Such a great pic. Also, to celebrate your new year I went with to a deli with my non-practicing jewish co-workers to enjoy some latkes. :)

  2. Oh goodness. These pictures are TOO awesome. Gorgeous!

  3. I agree great pics.

    I'm not Jewish but I love Jewish holiday food. Honey cake is delish!

    I'm especially fond of traditional break the fast meals.

  4. Happy new year!
