Everything Dipped in Honey – Rosh Hashana 2019 & Preparation towards Yom Kippur

Everything Dipped in Honey – Rosh Hashana 2019 & Preparation towards Yom Kippur

The sound of the Shofar ( ram’s horn) in our school was loud and clear. Mr. Boltax, an alumni parent, came for a visit with 2 amazing shofars. He showed the children how to use them, and blow them to their excitement. 

The children were fascinated. They laughed and reached out to touch the real shofar. For the weeks prior to Rosh Hashana the teacher were working with our children on the preparations:

  • Tasting apples dipped in honey, for a sweet new year
  • Mailing a Shana Tova card, wishing the family a happy new year and good blessings
  • Baking a Honey Cake – because everything is better with honey
  • Blowing the shofar
  • Working on our Midot (character traits) how to be kind to each other – how to ask “Please”, say “Thank You” and ask for forgiveness from  my friends and from Hashem
  • How to measure our good deeds – on a scale…..

We can all learn to be better for the next year.

Shana Tova  שנה טובה (Sweet New Year) $  גמר חתימה טובה  Gmar Chatima Tova (May you be inscribed in the book of life – for good life), to you and your family.
