*Fun and Trembling: Playing Rosh Hashanah Blog Tag*

My friend and colleague Menachem has started a blog tag as we prepare for Rosh Hashanah.
Now that the new students have arrived at Smith & Amherst, I am reminded that relationships are often influenced by their beginnings. How/where one first meets someone and the impressions that are made influence human relationships. Still, it is possible to reset relationships--to bring them back to a balance. That is one of the main tasks of the Yamim Noraim.

Welcome to campus and good luck repairing your relationships and soul,

Rabbi Bruce

That's all fine. What, however, do you think about Obadiah Shoher's criticism pf Rosh Hashanah as aholiday that has nothing to do with New Year? Here, for example http://samsonblinded.org/blog/petty-paganism.htm
