Shana Tova

by Rob Bralow, Wine Post Editor

It is very interesting to see what people buy for Rosh Hashanah. Obviously I expect people to purchase more kosher wine, but I am not sure why. Many of the people that take off during the Rosh Hashanah are the same people that buy plenty of non-kosher wine. If you are not going to drink kosher year round, why start now?

It might be more symbolic. One thing that continues to be true, no matter where in the country I am living, is that being Jewish is a community affair. Especially in New York, where at least one of every four people is part of the tribe. According to Wikipedia (which may or may not be accurate), in 2001 there were 1.92 million Jews in the city limits. Pretty impressive for what is a tiny fraction of the world's population.

Whatever your reason, I want to wish you all Shana Tova and I hope that the year 5771 is sweet and fruitful.
