West Hartford, CT Rabbi Establishes New Holiday
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WEST HARTFORD, Conn. - Aug 30, 2017 - Rabbi Stephen Lewis Fuchs has officially designated October 22 as Kof Awareness Day. The Hebrew month of Tishri has four major celebrations: Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah. By contrast, the following month, Heshvan, has none. Perhaps this is one of the reasons it is known as “Mar Heshvan,” meaning “Bitter Heshvan.”
Fuchs explains, “This will be a special day to make ourselves aware of the wonderful implications of the Hebrew letter Kof and its power to help us incline toward the “holy” (Kadosh) in our lives.”
Public Speaker and Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford, Stephen Fuchs is also the author of “What’s in it for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives”, “ToraHighlights,” and most recently, “Why the Kof?” Getting the Best of Rabbi Fuchs.” He has also published over one hundred articles, and has a new book coming out in the fall, titled, “Why Triple Chai? More of the Best of Rabbi Fuchs.”
Beginning next month, Rabbi Fuchs will accept the pulpit at Bat Yam Temple of the Islands in Sanibel Island, FL.Bat Yam Temple of the Islands.
