Hope you enjoyed 5771, because you only have a few more hours of it. As of sundown this evening, it is a new year. (Tablet Magazine will be dark Thursday and Friday for the yom tov.) Below, are a few links to get you prepared, and perhaps psyched.

• Well first and foremost, we have everything you could possibly want. Have you checked out our Rosh Hashanah page? Or even our F.A.Q.? Tried the pomegranate cocktail?

• Reboot structures your new year’s reflections with 10Q. Highly recommended. [Reboot]

• Forget housing; you can’t even afford honey in Israel these days. [JTA]

• Or tickets to services stateside! [NPR]

• Ukrainian right-wingers are distressed over the annual mass Hasidic pilgrimage to the grave of Rev Nachman in their country. [Haaretz]

• What the lovely Gail Simmons will be eating. [Esquire]
