      Rosh ha Shannah (rosh = head, shannah = year) will be here in about 7 weeks
      and because the Hebrew calendar has a different cyclical pattern than does
      the Christian-based secular calendar, there arises much confusion as to when
      Rosh ha Shannah and other Jewish Holy Days & Festival Days may occur.
      Hence, the following 5771 Calendar of Jewish Holy & Festival Days.

      Permission is granted to re-send this eMail of the 5771 Calendar of Jewish
      Holy & Festival Days to all organizations that you might belong to, so that
      they do not inadvertently schedule one of their important events on a Jewish
      Holy or Festival Day.

      Let me be the first to wish you, "L'Shannah Tovah* & Happy 5771",

      * L'Shannah Tovah (li-SHAH-nuh TOH-vuh; li-shah-NAH toh-VAH)
      Hebrew. Lit. for a good year. The common greeting during Rosh ha Shannah
      and the Days of Awe. This is a shortening of "L'Shannah tovah tikatev
      v'taihatem" (or, to women, "L'Shannah tovah tikatevi v'taihatemi"), which means,
      "May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year." This year, Rosh ha Shannah
      will begin at sundown on Wednesday, September 8 on the civil calendar.

      * In most years, Purim occurs on the 14 day of Adar, but in those years
      when there is an Adar II, then in those years Purim occurs on the 14 day of
      Adar II. In either case, those living in a "walled city" celebrate Purim the
      following day.

      ** The Festival of Shavuot has no given calendar date; it is to be
      celebrated 7 weeks after the Second Seder of Passover (this would be 50 days from
      the First Seder. Fifty in Greek is pentecost and thus the Christian version
      is called Pentecost.)
