In the days before Rosh Hashanah, we bless one another with a “Shana Tova v’Metuka” – a good and sweet year. Why do we give a blessing for both “good” and “sweet” – aren’t they one and the same? Sometimes things may look bad in our eyes, but Judaism teaches that everything that God does is good. Since often it is difficult for us to feel the ultimate good in a challenging situation, we bless each other that the year should be a “revealed” good, one that tastes “sweet” to us. This is the reason why on Rosh Hashana we dip an apple into honey – to “sweeten” the blessings in our lives!
