| A WORD FROM THE JNET DIRECTOR
Wow! What an intense month of holidays it has been!
From blowing a rams horn to eating a fish head, to wearing a suit, sneakers and all white, and fasting all day to eating in a hut sometimes in the cold and/or rain and shaking a mini garden, to smacking willows to dancing in circles, some of our practices can seem a little strange, yet each one is part of a bigger picture that sets the tone for the new year and prepares us to actually bring down G-dliness and spirituality into what we consider our normal, regular lives.
That is what the month of Cheshvan, which has no holidays, represents. Taking the "out of this world" energy and channeling it into our day to day lives.
It’s also a great time to make goals for the learning we want to accomplish this year with your study partner and get back into a regular schedule.
Wishing you much success in making this "regular" world spiritual!
Rabbi Yehuda Dukes
