Remembering LGBT Hate Crime Victims

Blessed Rosh Hashanah from Unfinished Lives

L’Shana Tovah!  This year, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, commences with sunset on September 16 and continues through nightfall of September 18.  The beauty of this great festival is that it celebrates the total human race.  Rosh Hashanah, meaning “The Head of the Year,” begins on 1 Tishrei, the first day of the Jewish calendar, and commemorates the anniversary of the creation of womankind and mankind–all males and females, commencing with the mythological First Woman and First Man, Eve and Adam.

Sam Meyer, our Friend on Facebook, reminds us that Rosh Hashanah accentuates the special relationship between G-d and humankind: our dependence upon G-d as Creator of Heaven, Earth, and the whole creaturely Cosmos, and the dependence of G-d upon humanity to make the works and ways of G-d known in the world.

Every remembrance of the fallen in the LGBTQ community we offer on this website, and every call for social justice we make is framed within this great story, in which all are the children of God, all are worthy of life and love, and all have their share in the dignity and co-creativity of creation.  So, the Unfinished Lives Project Team sounds the rams horn of hope as the New Year begins, and prays for your health and prosperity in the days and weeks to come!  L’Shana Tovah!

  1. I’d like to wish you all a happy Rosh Hashanah, and that this year 5,773; we can show that G-d loves us, His children and his begotten son Yeshua love us as well. And that G-d is love and same-sex love is also a G-d’s plan.Shana Tovah (Good Year) to everybody who loves their neighbors as themselves. And may G-d and Yeshua bless us everyone. If somebody tell you, “G-d hates fags,” or you are victim of a religious bigotry, remember that there’s one G-d, and He loves you the way you are, because you are his creation; and actually G-d hates intolerance, prejudice and people who despise one another.
