The Hebrew month of Tishri has four major celebrations: Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Unfortunately, the following month, Heshvan, has none. Perhaps this is one of the reasons we refer to it as "Mar Heshvan," "Bitter Heshvan." Well! Heshvan need be bitter no more!
We proclaim October 22, Kof Awareness Day. This will be a special day to make ourselves aware of the wonderful implications of the Hebrew letter Kof and its power to help us incline toward the "holy" (Kadosh) in our lives. It will also sweeten-up poor, bitter Heshvan. You can view the calendar here. Stay tuned for further details about Kof Awareness Day!

October 22 is Kof Awareness Day!
The first annual Kof Awareness Day is nearly upon us, and it is with great excitement and a bit of apprehension that I write this article. You see, we are new at this too. It's the first holiday we've created! That said, we have a few suggestions as to how to observe Kof Awareness Day. But! It is also somewhat of a personal holiday in that there is room for creativity. In other words, celebrate or observe the Kof Awareness Day in accordance with your heart's intuition. If it feels right, do it!
Below are a few suggestions: 1. Perform a few extra mitzvot. Go the extra mile for someone in need. 2. Learn more about the Hebrew Letter Kof. There are some fabulous books available that illuminate the Hebrew Aleph-Bet. I recommend "The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet" by Michael L. Munk. 3. Extra Torah study never hurt anyone... With that, I will close and allow you all to ponder the significance of Kof Awareness Day.

Repeatedly in the Bible, it is the woman who 'gets it' and the man who is clueless. Eve has been maligned for generations for the supposed fall of man, when in fact; she is the heroine of the elevation of humanity. ~
