SOS KIT: Chagim
As the seasons change, our lives are filled with new challenges. Summer vacations coming to an end, new school year starting, and the preparations for our High Holidays begin. Indeed, it could be very intense for many moms, all of us doing our best to create just the right balance to start the new year off right. Sometimes, it just takes a new idea and new inspiration, and SOSMOM is here to help!
ROSH HASHANAH: RENEWAL
Rosh HaShanah, the beginning of the Jewish year, is a time for joy and celebration, and also a time for introspection, consideration of the year completed and the year to come, our Jewish identity and how we are connected to our people and the Jewish homeland – Israel.
A beautiful custom to honor the New Year is to celebrate with a simanim (symbols) seder. This Rosh HaShanah seder is all about making blessings and sweet wishes on special foods connected to the New Year.
Nothing says Rosh HaShanah like apples and honey. This delicious challah is the perfect addition to your High Holiday table.
There is nothing more comforting and familiar than the knowledge that a brisket is quietly simmering away.
Sing along with the Ein Prat Fountainheads as we celebrate - dip your apple, it's Rosh Hashanah!
This gentle song written and composed by Naomi Shemer expresses hope for a happy new year for each of us as individuals and as a nation
Ask your children to draw the best thing that happened this year - you’ll be surprised by the results!
We hope you enjoy this SOS kit, and feel free to let us know your family's reactions!
Out of respect for Torah and Jewish law, we ask that you don’t cook these recipes or turn on your oven on any of the holidays, but prepare ahead. We also ask that you print any articles you plan to read on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, or the first days of Sukkot before the holiday begins. Likewise, please listen and learn any songs early, and do not play the music videos on the holiday itself. We ask the same of any content you plan to enjoy on Shabbat.
