    Note to Gordy and all well-meaning non-Jewish friends:
    Proper greetings for Rosh Hashanah:
    Happy New Year
    Shana Tovah (Hebrew for “good year”)
    Good Yuntif (Yiddish, “literally good holiday” or weirdly, “good good day”)
    May it Be A (Healthy, Sweet, Good, Prosperous, etc.) New Year
    May you be Insribed in the Book of Life
    Proper greetings for Yom Kippur:
    Have an Easy Fast
    May you be Sealed in the Book of Life
    or any of the Rosh Hashanah greetings
    Proper greetings for Sukkot, Shemini Atzert, Simchat Torah, Tu B’Shvat, Purim, and several others:
    My G-d, how many Jewish holidays are there???

    Out of my ignorance I’ve gotten in trouble with Jewish friends (and a college instructor) for saying I thought Yom Kippur was “some kinda fish”–my apologies to the Universe and Lenny Bruce
    Cause and Effect
    Having forgotten,
    born in a body, doomed to suffer daily crucifixion,
    then to end in death,
    thinking God is the enemy
    and love is fearful,
    the ego trembles as a separated self,
    insane within terrible autonomy,
    dreaming to punish, attacking to defend
    against images of pain.
    Yet a lily of forgiveness placed upon the altar,
    offered in deepest silence
    dissolves illusion into all-encompassing tranquility
    and remembrance that
    God’s Will is one,
    God’s Will has won,
    God’s Will is done.

    Is it appropriate to say “Happy Yom Kippur”? If it is, have a happy one. I’m not Jewish & after reading I see this is the highest of Holy Days for you, Mark. May G-d (can’t spell out His name, right?), bless you during this Day of Atonement.
