Local Jewish community prepares to celebrate "High Holy Days"

Posted On: 8/29/13
Written By: Rabbi Susan Warshaw, Temple Bat Yam

Local Jewish community prepares to celebrate "High Holy Days" For most Jews, the term “High Holy Days” is the title given to a period of 10 days that stretch between Rosh Hashanah, which means the first or “head” of the year, to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Both holidays have their basis in the Hebrew Bible (Leviticus 23:23-32) although the name Rosh Hashanah was not used until significantly later in Jewish history. Rosh Hashanah ushers in the Jewish New Year with a period of profound self-examination and repentance. It is a day of joyous celebration balanced against a humbling and solemn consideration of how well (or poorly) we have used the gift of the previous year. Tradition teaches us that God judges each of us individually and our community as a whole on Rosh Hashanah. Tradition also teaches that the result of God’s judgment will be a matter of life or death (either figurative or literal, depending on your theological orientation).

That was the case for young Stephen Gural when he spotted the pretty brunette coming out of an ice cream shop while he was visiting a friend in New Jersey. That was nearly eight decades ago. Stephen’s chance sighting of Frances Kulima led to a romantic pursuit, love affair and marriage that would end only as Stephen died still proclaiming his love for Frances, days after their 73rd wedding anniversary. It all began when he first laid eyes on a teen-aged Frances in the tightknit New Jersey town where she lived and where he was visiting friends and relatives. Stephen had been in the process of helping his family migrate from their farm in the Ukraine to Manitoba, Canada, at the urging of a Jewish neighbor, according to his daughter Darlene Hughes. It was the early 1930s and the neighbor was telling everyone he knew that the political climate in Ukraine was devolving with t...
