People complain when I remind them of the mitzvah to make aliyah. They complain when I remind them not to watch porn. So let’s talk about something else. Let’s learn something about blessings. Every morning when we wake up, we thank G-d for not having made us a member of some other nation. Why? Here’s an example.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is called Yom HaZicharon, the Day of Remembering.
A day of remembering G-d
In contrast, the gentile New Year’s is a day of forgetting, as the song says, “May old acquaintances be forgotten.”
"Where was I last night?"
The Jew seeks to remember G-d by making Kiddush.
A time of sanctification
The gentile seeks to forget Him by getting stoned drunk.
A time of forgetting who I was with
The Jews blow the shofar.
Blowing the shofar
The gentiles blow out their brains.
Blowing out one's brains
The Jews spends the day praying.
A time of prayer
The gentile spends the day puking.
A time of puking
On the Jewish New Year, Jews aren’t allowed to engage in sexual relations, even with their wives.
A day of purity
On New Year’s Eve, gentiles end up going home with anything that moves.
"Hey, baby, you're looking pretty good tonight!"
Blessed be the Almighty for making me a Jew!
