     The new Jewish year of 5782 began Monday at sunset, and America’s Jews anticipate a cautious return to in-person celebrations of Rosh Hashana, Hebrew for “Head of the Year.” Holiday gatherings and festivities are expected to be tempered by ongoing COVID-19 worries as well as concerns about a rise in anti-Semitic attacks around the globe.  Regardless, All have a healthy and sweet New Year.

     “There’s a stronger sense of confidence which has been created by the vaccine, hopefully not confidence without proper caution at the same time,” Rabbi Moshe Hauer of Baltimore said in an interview. “Synagogues in our network by and large are getting together” for in-person worship, he added, often with more services to allow for greater social distancing by congregants.
