Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Choosing Tuesday's Rosh Hashanah message was no problem for Temple Sinai's interim Rabbi Jeffrey Ronald. "We've been handed our text by recent events," Ronald said, alluding to the recent terrorist attacks on America. The call of the shofar, or ram's horn, and the call of war were addressed by Ronald as part of Rosh Hashanah services Tuesday. The two-day religious celebration began Monday at sundown and marked the beginning of the year 5762 -- the number of years since the creation of Adam and Eve. "Essentially, we're celebrating the birth of the human race," Ronald said.

The actual holiday occurs on Saturday, but celebration begins Friday evening as the traditional Jewish day begins at sundown. "It's a time when we as human beings rejuvenate ourselves and plan a better life," said Rabbi Simcha Backman of the Chabad Jewish Center.

The sound is the beginning of the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah, and is a time to seek atonement. "Having a specific time set aside for this gives the person a sense of regularity," said Rabbi Jonathan Biatch of Glendale's Temple Sinai. "They know at a certain point to join together with their community and seek atonement."

The percentage of new clergy younger than 35, across mainline denominations, including Protestant and Roman Catholic, is reportedly dropping, according to a recent study by the Lewis Center for Leadership at Wesley Theological Seminary. Are you seeing a drop in your faith? If so, what do you think is driving it? Are you concerned?   The dilemma of an aging clergy is symptomatic of a general aging of church and synagogue members. Seats vacated by the older generation are now left empty instead of being filled by youth.
