Yes, I am aware of the fact that right now we are in September 2012. Yet, today is the last day of year 5772!
I am sure you all know the Christen date right now is 16th of September 2012. In the same time there are other calendars aside of the Christen one. As a Jew I am working according to the Jewish one.
According to the Jewish calendar today, 16th of September 2012, is actually 30th of Elol – the last month of the year 5772. And once this day will end at 18:12 according to GMT+2 (Jerusalem time), it willbecome 1st of Thisrei (the first month of the year) 5773!
The first day of the year is called “Rosh Ha-Shanah” which means the head of the year – an expression in Hebrew that means – the first of the year.
According to the Jewish belief this
Since those are important holidays they are celebrated with the family and there are many rules and regulation about how to celebrate them. The main rule is: no work is allowed. So I will not be online during the next 2 days (the time of the holiday).
I will take this opportunity to wish you all a happy year, or as we Jewish like to say: may your year be as sweet as honey!
