A sweet new year
Philip Schwartz of Arbor Cove was moved to tears as the memories of Rosh Hashanah long gone bye, returned. He remembered the blessing over the wine, the ha-Motzi, and candle lighting. He was extremely happy to have and share honeycake, challah with raisins, and apples and honey.
Schwartz was able to send his sister in Canada, whom he has not seen in many years, a New Years card. Best of all was his thrill hearing the shofar blown by Jewish Pavilion Program Director Walter Goldstein.
"I could not have asked for a sweeter new year," Schwartz said in Yiddish, then translated for those who only speak a bissel.
