There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Thank you Kap! And to you too.

I had a feeling that was what...Hebrew?? Soon as Hoplyte said Shalom I knew. I'm sorry...just woke up...not one snappy one liner to be had. Sometimes that's how it goes...first your money then your clothes...

L'shanah Tovah from Wisconsin. May 5774 be full of happiness, health and peace for you and all of yours.
Is there any astrological significance to the choice of the New Year? I've always felt that our Dec 31 was remarkably arbitrary.
This became a problem with my family since one side is Seventh-day Adventist and swears that Saturday is the correct Sabbath/Shabbat as do the Jews. My Baptist side believes it's Sunday because of the resurrection.
After studying this calendar for over 4 years off and on, I think they all are wrong. If one were to go by they Hebrew calendar then the true "Sabbath" or "Shabbat" would fall on different days of our week, the weeks made by mans calendar. They didn't have names for days back then (they did for months but not the same names that we got now) but the days were numbered according to the NEW MOON. Now the New Moon is a holy day but not the same as the Sabbath/Shabbat. There is a New Moon day then the day after that starts with day 1, day 2, day 3 and so on until the next New Moon. You will see the term New Moon and references to it all through the Bible but mostly in the Old testament, and the Torah (ie: first 5 books of Moses).
So, to answer your question about the astrological significance then the answer to me would be yes because of the New Moon day.
I would like to apologize again to the OP for not understanding his first post as I certainly meant no disrespect ~ I do not know the Hebrew language and thought he was making up something just to have fun with us. If the term Rosh Hashanah were used then I wouldn't have put my foot in my mouth!

We just got home from morning services, where I once again had the honor and privilege of sounding the shofar.
Thank you and L'Shanah Tovah with much health and happiness in the new year to all who celebrate it on the forum.
