Tonight begins the holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and thus I will be offline from tonight through Tuesday night in order to celebrate. Simon brought home a few projects from school that I am happy to share here today!
This is a pomegranate that says Shana Tova (Happy New Year) on it. There is a magnet on the back so it can be hung up.
This is the cover of Simon’s book about Rosh Hashanah.
This shows the three things we do on Rosh Hashanah – asking for forgiveness, praying, and giving to the poor.
This is the sounds of the shofar.
Here is a prayer that Simon wrote – that he wants a new kippah. Which is funny, because he just got two new kippahs in Israel!
This is a picture of a tzedakah box, which is where we put money for poor people.
The last page is a picture of a crown.
And this is Simon’s honey dish!
For everyone celebrating, I wish you a sweet new year!
