Jewish New Year - A time for reflection

Rosh Hashanah begins this evening. The Jewish New Year is a time to reflect on one's thoughts and deeds in the past year. An e-mail I received this morning goes further:

* Are we better off now than last year?

* Did we spend our time and energy wisely?

* What difference did we make to people's lives?

* How is this year going to be different from all other years?

Now this would be great for a meme. Consequently, the following few have been asked to respond!

Happy New Year- 5768, isn't it?

Interesting meme.
I shall think on it.

That's all fine. What, however, do you think about Obadiah Shoher's criticism pf Rosh Hashanah as aholiday that has nothing to do with New Year? Here, for example http://samsonblinded.org/blog/petty-paganism.htm
