L’Shanah Tovah! Ketivah v’chatima tovah!

Posted on: September 13, 2015

L’Shanah Tovah, BGJ readers! It’s so hard to believe that the year has already come and gone.

I hate to admit it, but I’ve become a Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur Jew. I’ve only been to shul three times in 5775!

5775 has been a rough year with the move, adjusting to a new Jewish community and our miscarriage. It’s hard to get excited about a new year, but there are a few things that I hope will happen in 5776

To be more involved in the Jewish community in either Seattle or Tacoma

To become a mother

To continue to be a good Jewish Diversity Advocate for JMN and in my personal life.

A few weeks ago I did a podcast for Treyf, a podcast based in Canada. I talked about race and racism and ways we as Jews can combat it in our own communities. Take a listen and be sure to like Treyf on Twitter and Facebook!

Belated Happy New Year!!!

Hi Erika!
Good luck in Tacoma. I’m from NYC, originally, the Lower East Side– but not since 1980. Since then, we lived in NC, NH, and now SoFla, which is the closest to the 5 Boroughs ever. Great diversity.
We Jews are fortunate to have folks like you who care. Contact me if you have any questions, though I see there are Jews in your neck of the woods, as well. Stay dry and happy.
L’shana tova, David Mark
