The American Jewish World wishes all of our readers a Good and Sweet New Year!
Farewell to the old year and its curses; welcome to the new year and its blessings.
The American Jewish World was pleased to present artwork and a poem by Marcia Falk on the cover of the Sept. 12 Rosh Hashana special edition.
The cover motif is based on Falk’s illustration titled “Gilead Apples,” which adorns the cover of her new book, The Days Between: Blessings, Poems, and Directions for the Jewish High Holiday Season (Brandeis).
The short poem on the cover, “Opening the Heart,” is an epigraph to her book, which is a fascinating supplement to the traditional High Holidays liturgy.
