From us to you: L'Shana Tovah

Don & Nancy Harrison, co-publishers of San Diego Jewish World, would like to take this occasion to wish all of our readers— and all of the wonderful writers who so graciously volunteer their talents—a healthy, peaceful and prosperous Jewish New Year. In the meaningful tradition of these Days of Awe, we also apologize and seek the forgiveness of anyone whom we may have offended. We promise to continue our efforts to improve our coverage of both San Diego's Jewish community and of Jewish communities around the world. We ask you to provide us with your ideas about how we may do that in the approaching Jewish year of 5770. May we all be inscribed once again in the Book of Life!
