A Bruin Jewish New Year

We belong to a large, reformed Temple on the Westside of Los Angeles. Every High Holiday season, our temple rents a ball room at the Century Park Hotel because our sanctuary is too small to accommodate the large number of Jews who attend services this time of year. This year the Hotel double booked so our temple had to look elsewhere for a place to hold services.

Well, I'm predicting this year should be very "sweet". Our family and community will ring in the new year at Royce Hall on the campus of UCLA.

I'm leaving shortly but I wanted to share with my sports community on BN that not only will I be praying for health, happiness, peace in the middle east, and a variety of other more spiritual things, this year I'll say a little extra prayer for our Bruin gridiron warriors who play tonight on the eve of the first night of Rosh Hashanna. I'll ask G-d to let our boys play again on the Secular New Years Day in a major bowl game and for a victory tonight.   I'll be at my other temple tonight (aka the Rose Bowl) to help cheer on our squad. But starting the New Year off praying at Royce has to mean that the Gods (whoever your G-d is) are looking down on us.

 

Happy New year to all.
