Rosh Hashanah:

    London’s Jewish Community Celebrates Rosh Hashanah Smartphones have made us more selfish, Europe’s chief rabbi has suggested, but coronavirus has forced us to care more about others. Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, Chief Rabbi of Moscow and President of the Conference of European Rabbis, made the comments as the world’s Jewish community celebrate Rosh Hashanah this weekend. Speaking to The Telegraph, Rabbi Goldschmidt said: “We live in a postmodern generation, an individualistic generation, where the individual usually takes precedence over the public or society and everything we do is with iPhone, iPod, everything is ‘I’ and I think this challenge which was brought to us, this pandemic, [it shows that] if something is happening thousands of miles away in a Chinese...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Just as many Jews in the United States were sitting down to a post-sunset Rosh Hashanah dinner on Friday, preparing to dip apples in honey to signal the sweetness of the year to come, news came of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death. Ginsburg, the first female Jewish member of the U.S. Supreme Court, died on one of the holiest days in Judaism, as many of the country's nearly six million Jews welcomed the new year 5781, based on the Hebrew calendar. Ginsburg was raised in a secular household, but explained in 2018 that her religious background influenced her life's work: "I am a judge, born, raised and proud of being a Jew.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — The Jewish New Year may look different in the age of COVID-19 but restaurants across the Bay Area are trying to preserve tradition with special meal kits. The five-course holiday meal for two at Schmaltz in North Beach is proving to be a big hit this weekend, so much so that it’s extending the kit through September. The modern Jewish pop-up opened during the pandemic and already they’ve sold eight times the number of meal kits they normally sell. “The highlight is that it’s easy, a lot of kits out there pre-COVID were trying to teach people how to cook and have people cutting and doing all these ornate cooking rituals,” said chef Beth Needelman. Schmaltz...
    There’s a Jewish tradition that someone who dies on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, must have been a tzaddik, a righteous person. After all, God waited all year to carry out the decree. Perhaps that offers some comfort to those mourning the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg (Hebrew name, Yita Ruchel bat Tzirel Leah) who finally succumbed to cancer at the age of 87, after convincing many of us that she was immortal. But the themes of Rosh Hashanah offer another lesson as well: a warning to those Republican senators pondering whether or not to support Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s unbelievable, shameful, cynical, immoral hypocrisy in pushing to replace Justice Ginsberg just hours after her passing and...
    Ivanka Trump was pictured arriving at her Manhattan apartment last night, marking the first time that she has been photographed in New York City since the pandemic hit the US earlier this year. The 38-year-old cut a casual figure as she made the short walk from her SUV to the front door on Thursday evening, dressed down in dark skinny jeans and a light gray sweatshirt — and she was spotted again Friday morning as she dropped her son Joseph off at his grandparents' home. While Jared is still in Washington, D.C. and kids Arabella and Theodore have not yet been spotted in New York, Ivanka's arrival comes in time for the start of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a message for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, on Thursday in which he lied about President Donald Trump’s reaction to neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. Biden told Jews that President Trump had called neo-Nazis “very fine people,” repeating the “Charlottesville very fine people hoax,” according to a mantra he has used throughout the campaign, in speech after speech, debate after debate: Together, we can stamp out bigotry and antisemitism. One of the things that got me involved in this race — we, I had not planned on running — was when those folks came out of the fields down in Charlottesville, chanting the same anti- — carrying torches, their veins bulging,...
