Rosh Hashanah is also the birthday of humanity.

The word Saturday comes from latin that stands for the planet Saturn’s Day, and was shortened to Saturday, not from shabath. The Spanish borrowed the Hebrew word for this day of the week in their language.

I love the Jews too and I believe God did not forget His people. Thank God for Jesus who is also a Jew lol! God bless Israel and peace to them all.

I’m a Gentile and I send a Chanukah card to my close Jewish friend every year. Are there other Jewish holidays for which a non-Jewish person may send cards to one’s Jewish friends without offending?

Good question. The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah is a beautiful time to send a card to a Jewish person. Here is some more information about this holiday:

I wanted to send Holiday Cards out and a few of my friends are Jewish. I went on a site that showed Chanukkah (I believe is around Christmas) but other sites show it as Hanukkah. Which is correct, I wrote Happy Chanukkah

Hanukkah is actually a transliteration of the Hebrew word, so technically there is no “right” answer!
