shanah tovah u'metukah
My wife Ariella has a nice post on why we say "shanah tovah u'metukah" -- why not just "shanah tovah", like "kesiva v'chasima tovah"? The answer is that what is good for us may not always be sweet, and what is sweet is not always good. We ask Hashem for both. Take a look over here.
