wOOOt! It's the Jewish High Holidays

Happy Jewish New Year to all my friends out there!
It's the first day of the so-called Jewish High Holidays which starts with Roshashana and ends next week with Yom Kippur.
It is also called the "Days of Repentence" or the "Days of Awe". According to the oral tradition passed down by the Rabbi's, on Roshashana, G-d inscribes the names of the righteous people into the "Book of Life". On Yom Kippur, the book is sealed. The next 10 days is spent trying to be a better person. To make ammends and to right oneself with G-d by performing acts of kindness and charity. This way, we're guaranteed to be inscribed to the "Book of Life" till next year.

May you all be inscribed into the "Book Of Life". Happy New Year!
