We at The Jewish Star mark the start of 5780 with a feeling of sincere gratitude to Hashem for allowing us to continue our work, and we redouble our commitment to using these pages constructively in the service of our local communities and of Klal Yisrael.

As we approach Yom Kippur,

I ask mechilah of anyone I may have hurt, accompanying that request with my unconditional apology. And I offer mechilah

to anyone who might seek it.

Wishing all a gemar chatimah tovah.
