L'Shana Tovah to all who are observing the holiday, beginning tonight. I'll have a regular posting schedule today (although I have kitchen responsibilities, so I'm not sure exactly what I'll get done). Then I'll go dark by sundown tonight until Friday night. Ah, the screwy life of the conservative Jew -- I won't post on Rosh Hashanah, but Shabbat isn't a problem for me. As long as my rabbi doesn't work. At least not in that sense of work.
At any rate, it's a major occasion for Plain Blog today, because the president is delivering his annual message to schoolkids, and if the White House posts the transcript promptly I'll do my best to get my traditional interpretation up before the holiday begins. In other words, I'll be observing all of my usual rituals, today and tonight and tomorrow. So once again: l'shana tovah to all.
