  1. I would like also like to wish a gmar chasima tova to all and that we should all be inscribed in the book of life. I once heard that the reason the gemoro says one doesnt say hallel on rosh hashono is because the books of the living and dear are open. It also says ‘lo hamesim’ cannot praise God. Therefore its not right to praise God in their prescence since they are unable to.

It was an amazingky scary display of Gevuras HaShem.

  3. This picture , one of many, was taken of part of the damage to a car on our block. For those interested, the eruv was down this past Shabbos and YK.http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/09/17/nyregion/storm-readerphotos.html
