L’Shanah Tova! Happy New Year.

The New Year on the Hebrew calendar is coming up on the 1st of Tishrei, 5778, which on the Gregorian calendar begins at sunset on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.

In Hebrew, I say: כתיבה וחתימה טובה with the transliteration of “Ketivah v’chatima tovah” meaning in English “A good inscription and sealing (in the Book of Life).”
In Yiddish, I say: א גוט געבענטשט יאהר with the transliteration of “A gut gebentsht yohr” meaning in English “A good and blessed year.”
