Shalom!
 
We are entering the High Holy Days season. Our rabbi volunteer panelists will be focusing on their own observance and celebrations, and serving the communities in which they live and work. As a result, any questions submitted will be delayed, both in being assigned and in being answered. You are welcome to submit questions, but please be patient if you do; answers will not be immediate.
 
Of course, you are welcome to visit Jewish Values Online and view the over 800 active questions and related answers online, or to read the growing number of Blog entries that will continue to be published during this period.
 
To all who are celebrating the holiday – our deep wishes for a meaningful holiday period, and Shanah tovah umetukah tikateivu utichateimu (may you be written and sealed for a happy and sweet new year).
 
For those people who do not celebrate these holidays those who celebrate other holidays or none at this time of year, we extend warm wishes that the fall season will bring you good weather, joy, and blessings.
 
Thank you for your continued support and interest in Jewish Values Online.
