IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING
This morning in Chapel, Rev Susan gave a lesson on “Rosh Hashanah”, the Jewish New Year, that is being celebrated today. It is the first day of the Jewish year 5779 and began at sundown on Sunday, 9 September and will end at sundown on Tuesday, 11 September. In the Jewish faith, Rosh Hashanah (meaning “It is written”) signifies a time of healing of relationships, forgiveness and restoration. People of the Jewish faith believe that doing good deeds and giving to charity at this time will lead to a happy year ahead. Rev encouraged the girls to use chapel time as an opportunity for “shalom”, to bring mental well-being and inner peace. She reminded us that God is not a God who punishes; He is a loving God who longs for us to enjoy peace, wholeness and joy.
