What does 'L'Shanah Tovah' mean?

Recommended Posts

Can somebody give me an English translation of this? I got the impression from an earlier thread that it is something to do with the New Year??? Thanks.

More literally, ‘For, or to, a good year’. The full form of the traditional message (given somewhere in violamom's thread) is ‘L'shanah tovah tikateivu v'tikateinu’, meaning ‘may you and we be written down for a good year’.

corr.The last word is v'taichataimu. And the transalation is "may you (plural form) be written and sealed for a good year".
