Classes start this Sunday. And I find I am almost giddy with excitement; but I suspect -- in comparison with my students, I may be alone in my enthusiasm. God I hope this enthusiasm is contagious.
How appropriate that the Jewish New Year is right around the time of our first class. Of course, Rosh Hashanah is this week, and our class isn't until Sunday -- but it is close. So as we start our new year of classes we will discuss New Year's and what this whole concept of celebrating the new year is all about.
