JEWISH NEW YEAR AT THE BEACH by b. Malin

I know what you're thinking and maybe it's true...who spends "Jewish New Year" at the Beach? Me, and Lover Man walking hand and hand making footprints in the sand, that's who!

I make no excuse for our actions today. It's the way we choose to celebrate, and believe me when I say, it's great! I don't ever remember the ocean looking so clean and playful as it does today. It can't wait to spray our thighs begging us to step further into its depth, and when we do, it splashes our faces ever so gently with it's "salty kisses of love".

Oh tonight we will go to be with family and friends, dressing and playing the part. Don't get me wrong, I love this Holiday with all my heart....I even knew the date...5771, and when I wished family and friends a "Happy Healthy 5771" on Facebook today...everyone thought that was great. In turn it started a real chain reaction of everyone doing the same, until it came back to me once again!

So saying "HAPPY JEWISH NEW YEAR" by the Ocean is (I'd like to imagine) where it all began anyway. Besides, I don't think God would mind. I see him as having a great sense of Humor.

Hey look...do my eyes deceive me? That figure out there surfing among the waves, in the white robe, smiling and waving, and it looks like a bright light is shining over his head. He's trying to say something above the roar of the ocean. And he's laughing, really laughing, he's having such a good time.

Lover Man and I go further into the foam to hear him say, "Happy Jewish New Year...Happy 5771 to you both". "Isn't surfing Great" I shout... "Enjoy the waves of Life,"he replies as he seems to disappear in a foam of rainbows.

Lover Man and I look at each other wondering if what we saw....we really saw. But it doesn't really matter, and probably no one would believe us....or maybe they would. Either way, we feel happy and content as we run back to our blanket on the sand, happy and content. We think of the words as we look at each other and both say at once...."Enjoy the waves of Life."

So to all our Jewish Family and Friends, a very Happy, Healthy New Year. May 5771 be a safe year for Israel, and all our Brothers and Sisters around the world. Peace to all.

      Thanks Phdast, I'm so glad you Enjoyed this Hub which I wrote last year. I guess it's timeless in its Fashion. Religion is what we make it, and how we embrace it.

      I look forward to reading your Hubs as well.

      What an interesting and moving Hub. Celebrating with family and friends is wonderful, but enjoying the beach with one's significant other is also great! I appreciate and admire that you embrace both. :)

      I am not Jewish myself, but I have spent a lot of time with a Jewish sister-in-law. We have a common Father-God-Yahweh, and our faith and beliefs do differ, but on the most important issues we usually are in agreement.

      However, both of us would celebrate with you the fact that the Lord of Lights can and does speak to us on occasion. And what a message, "Enjoy the Waves of Life!" Blessings. SHARING
