A Shana Tova and a happy and sweet new year to all.

 

It is a Jewish tradition to have symbolic foods at the Rosh Hashanah meal over which one says something of a play on words related to the food to usher in good karma for the new year. A very simplistic and fudged example: Beets. Why? So our enemies in the coming year may be beet down.

 

This year, I’m suggesting a twist. Invite to your Rosh Hashanah meal as many guys named Grant as you can, because, well, we could all use more grants in the coming year.

 

Okay… how about this? Have a sweet new year, and may your fund raising over the next 12 months not fall as flat as that joke.
