My family has just celebrated the Jewish New Year, Rosh HaShanah, and are now at the beginning of the year 5778. Whether you celebrate Rosh HaShanah or not, fall is a time of new beginning for all of us on an academic calendar and I hope if you have school-age kids that they are settling in to a great new school year.
While it’s 5778 in Jewish time, it will soon enough be 2018 on the Western calendar. In Jewish tradition 18 is a special number whose value in letters spell out “chai” meaning “life.” To honor the coming “Chai” year, I’ve decided to hold 18 more Little Gate-Crasher book events through the year! I already have a number of events scheduled~and would love to join your community for one of the 18!
