In this bright and fun-filled picture book, a lively family enjoys all the wonderful Rosh Hashanah mitzvos, foods, and activities that celebrate the start of a brand new year.
To prepare for the holiday, they pick apples, harvest honey, send out New Year’s cards, and bake raisin challah!
Once Rosh Hashanah arrives, they eat special foods, listen to the sound of the shofar, and walk to the river for Tashlich.
Bold, colorful illustrations capture the joy and fun as everyone participates!
The playful rhymes will have young children chanting along in no time:
“Rosh Hashanah’s almost here,
Time to start a brand new year!”
