As we prepare for another year, we also look around. While we contemplate our lives we look for meaning and preview High Holiday services, its melodies and meaning. We will start a new series on the Tanakh, examining the content & source of the material. We will look at American Jewish History in another new series. We also look at Orange County Jewish Life and how the magazine approaches its content. Since we live in a many religions society we are also looking at how our neighbors believe.
