On Monday night, in true La Cañada Flintridge holiday tradition, the septic system went out a few hours before our Seder. Luckily, the cesspool pumping guy successfully pumped it, with moments to spare. The septic system rebelled against the days of spring cleaning. Cupboards were emptied and cleaned. Dishes were removed and replaced with Passover dishes. The house was scrubbed within inches of sanity. All sorts of objects ended up in the garbage disposal, including garbage, which apparently is anathema, not only to the disposal itself, but also to the septic system.

At sundown on Friday, Sept. 18, Jewish families in La Cañada Flintridge will mark the beginning of the year 5770 on the Jewish calendar. The holiday is called Rosh Hashanah, which means the “head” or beginning of the year. In the Bible, the holiday is referred to as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar or ram’s horn). Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of a ten-day period of observance and introspection, which culminates with Yom Kippur, the day of atonement.

In his office at Temple Sinai of Glendale, the paperwork and music sheets piled on Steve Hummel's office desk indicates that he's well settled in since taking over as cantor in July. So he was perfectly ready to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, which commences the Jewish High Holy Days, when it began at sundown on Wednesday. Hummel made the move to Glendale from a Santa Monica synagogue, where he worked for the last 10 years. Prior to that, he was living in Chicago when a friend called him about the Santa Monica job on what he recalls as “a very cold day in December.” As a cantor, Hummel, 42, is by definition a musician.
