Shana Tova 5783: Niver’s News: Sept 2022


Sept News 2022 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Frank and Judi Niver on the bima for Rosh Hashannah at Stephen Wise Temple, Sept 26, 2022

Shana Tova 5783! This month starts the Jewish New Year.

My family celebrated in Denver with our cousins and at our synagogue, Stephen Wise Temple, in Los Angeles. My parents were honored with an aliyah to say the blessing before reading the Torah.

This reading in our Stephen Wise Temple Machzor for the Days of Awe prayer book on p. 65 –really spoke to me:

How might we, in our day to day lives, transform curses into blessings? How might we, instead of hating the other, find cause for admiration? We may not enter the house of worship fully ready to pray, but by lifting our voices together, by searching for the good in one another and in our tradition, we hope to find cause for praise and thanksgiving so that we might, with full hearts, cry out: ‘How good is this place! how wondrous is this moment.'” Cantor Emma Lutz and Rabbi Yoshi Zweiback

What will you do to make this new year wondrous and filled with moxie?
