09/25/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Shana Tova - May you be inscribed in the Book of Life!

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, began last evening at sunset, ushering in the High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot).

   This Holiday celebration repeats around this same time every year.  No doubt most of us are probably not personally observing this holiday, but we don't concern ourselves with such trifling details such as that here.  We try to celebrate everything together as the one big happy family that we are.  So we extend all our best wishes for all good things for all our friends and family!

   Happy Rosh Hashanah!
