Rosh HaShanah-Ceremony in Bonn (5768)
One candle: For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness!…
…this way we met yesterday night to celebrated the feast of Rosh HaShanah together, while having a traditional New Years-meal. Us, Jews (hard to believe, all Sabre) and Christians, from Cologne, Meckenheim and Bonn.
God’s feasts are His Shabbats, a link between Jews and Christians:
How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore. (Ps 133)
