Reading Hannah anew

Eid mubarak!

Tonight at sundown, as Jews mark the end of Shabbat with havdalah and celebrate the transition from the first day of Rosh Hashanah to the second day of Rosh Hashanah, our Muslim friends and cousins will be celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan.

To all of my Muslim friends and readers, I wish an عيد مبارك / Eid Mubarak, a blessed end to the festival of Ramadan.

And to my Jewish friends and readers, I wish a continuing שנה טובה תכתבו / shanah tovah tikatevu -- may you be inscribed for a good year to come.

(And to everyone else...it's not your holiday season, but I hope you're having a lovely week!)
