Raboyseyee and Raboyseyettes:
Erev Rosh Hashono
The Oisvorfer and eishes chayil (also editor in chief) would like to take this opportunity to wish his entire readership, both here in the United States and abroad, a meaningful Rosh Hashono and an overall givaldige Yom Tov and year ahead. May the coming year bring you peace of mind, peace at home, a good piece, if you chap, good health, and zicher (of course) a few extra dollars wouldn’t hurt anyone, would it?
Avada the Oisvorfer would love to speak personally with each and every reader and Oisvorf follower before this special Yom Tov of Rosh Hashono when we renew our commitment to the RBSO by davening while looking at our watches every now and then to see how much longer until the end, by marathon eating, by dipping apples and other fruits, if you chap, and telling the RBSO that beginning this very Yom Tov, we will conduct ourselves properly, perform all the required mitzvois ah-say (thou shall do’s) and avoid the forbidden ones.
Alas, this is not at all possible – none of it – your T’shuva (repentance) and other promises will last ten days at best, mistama much shorter and why bother calling when the RBSO in His magnificence, allowed technology to develop to a point where we have smart phones, email, messaging, Blackberry’s, I phones and other such givaldige devices that can more than adequately convey our thoughts. Why waste time calling chaverim and mishpocho when this impersonal method is so terribly effective?
That being said, the Oisvorfer wishes upon all his readers, followers, fans, those who officially receive the heylige Toirah weekly, those who log on to the site because chas v’sholom they should officially receive it, and even to those who deny ever receiving or reading it but do so religiously, the best year ever, followed by more of the same.
May the RBSO taka forgive you, us, and avada and avada the Oisvorfer, as He had done for generations ever since selecting the Yiddin to be His people; seemingly He knew what He was getting and we haven’t ever disappointed..
K’siva- Vachasima Toiva and a git gibentched yur (may you be inscribed for good, may it be so sealed and have a great and blessed year.)
A gitten Yom Tov
