b e a u t y || rosh hashanah (the jewish new year) is almost here! so that means i'm busy pampering myself before the three-day yom tov starts. @formulary55 has the greatest rosehip + clay #facialscrub i've ever tried, + i've loved adding this gem to my beauty routine. + just a heads up -- i won't be on social media (or using electronics at all) from wednesday night, sundown to saturday night, sundown. i'll be busy soaking in all the spiritual cleansing, apples + honey + family time without the added business (+ sometimes even social media) related stress. i plan to return to my everyday life feeling recharged + renewed. as i'll be spending most of my day preparing for the holiday, i'd now like to wish my fellow jews an uplifting, beautiful, holy yom tov filled with simcha, good company, amazing food + plenty of board games. to everyone else, i'll miss you guys! wishing you a great rest of your week. xo, britt 📷: @brittcosinger

it's pointless when this goyim is arguing with these twisted fucks. Goyim is derogatory meaning of a gentle (non jew) by jews. in Judaism animal killing is kosher and islam is halal which justifies slaughtering of animals for god, as judiasm was a big influence on islam in the jewish town of yathrib (mecca). in true christianity, bloodshed is forbidden even though most Christians are clueless of the meaning of it and eat meat but written by the early church fathers that eating meat is the pollution to the body and that's were fasting from meat is requested by the church on religious occasions. our holy miracle working saints obstain from eating meat and are not weak to their appetite of their body in the physical aspect. that's why they performed miracles such as Padre poo, mar gossip, st. Giles and etc. the Saints are my inspiration, I wish these fools could understand empathy like the saints. - This sick, twisted sacrifice is performed every October and is called Kaporos. In a city near you some Jews will meet outside with police protection and kill thousands of birds. They swing them around their heads claiming they are passing on their sins to the chicken. which are then stabbed in the neck and thrown in the trash. Piles of garbage bags filled with chicken corpses are left for people to throw away at the side of the road. They claim to give the chickens to charity for food which is a lie. 🤔🤔 And let's suppose they did give he meat away to other families. Think about it . They believe they are passing on the sins to the chicken. So then they give this dead cursed chicken to people to eat??? Let others eat the birds they think are cursed? This ritual is truly barbaric and pure savagery. Activists have tried many times to get the events banned to no prevail. If I took a chicken outside and started stabbing it in the neck I'm sure if be thrown in jail. Fucking savages. #kaporos #chickensacrifice #jewish #jew #jews #chicken #orthodox #catholic #christianity #christians #christian #bible #god #israel #assyrian #chaldean #muslim #islam #mosque #jesus #spirituality #spirit #spiritual #athiest #religion #kosher #hijab #telaviv #jerusalem #orthodoxjew

b e a u t y || i love ethical companies that provide opportunities of growth for their female #bossbabes. @thelittlemarket is the first place that comes to mind; if you haven't tried their collection of #sugarscrubs you're honestly missing out. the one pictured above is vanilla + it's heaven in a jar. 📷: @brittcosinger

h o m e || over the last few months a bunch of you have asked me to be pen pals with you. if i had the extra time, i totally would. + i'd probably type out some pretty letters using this beauty from 1939; but i guess that would make me a type pal? until i prioritize my goings on better or just magically add an extra hour to my day, accept this post as my apology, but know you're all loved deeply by me! 📷: @brittcosinger

There is a tradition, found mostly in the Chassidic community, of purchasing a new knife for Rosh Hashanah. It is said to be a segulah [spiritually propitious] for parnassah [livelyhood]. In Sefer Tehillim (Psalms) 145:16 we find the following sentence: פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת-יָדֶךָ; וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל-חַי רָצוֹן. The final letters of the words,  פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת-יָדֶךָ [you open up your hand] spell the word חתך - Chatach [cut] which is the name of the Angel in charge of Parnassah.  Additionally, the word that follows in the verse, וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ - u'masbe'a [and satisfy]  has the numerical value of 428 –  the same value as the word "chatach." For this reason, purchasing a new, sharp knife is a segulah, for livelihood, which we petition from Hashem for the upcoming year. In addition, the knife serves as a reminder of the following: -Bris Milah (circumcision), corresponding to the Torah portion on the first day of Rosh Hashanah which describes the first circumcision that was accomplished on the 8th day (on Yitzchok). -Teshuvah (return to G-d; repentance), the first step of sins being cut off. -Akeidas Yitzchak, Corresponding to the Second day of Rosh Hashanah Torah portion. Avraham took a knife, wood, and fire to offer up Yitzchok as a sacrifice. The knife was used for the second step, on the ram for the sacrifice in place of Yitzchok. Yitzchok became a living sacrifice, a patriarchal example of a holy life with the fire of Torah burning within. Thus, purchasing a new knife would be a reminder of this, to be a living sacrifice. Now let's not get all sidetracked with all these segulahs for Rosh Hashanah because there are many out there. They are all there to help us stay focused on what we need to think about and how we should approach the Rosh Hashana and how we should be living each and every day. May Hashem inscribe you and your family, and all the Jewish people, for a year abundant in livelihood—and everything good! #roshhashana #shanatova #knife #knives #jewishtradition #jewishlife #chassidim #chassid #jewish #kiruv #orthodoxjew #kosher #rabbi #synagogue #rabbiroyde #travelingchassidim #traditionsexplained
