Apples And Honey: A Rosh Hashanah Story (Festival Time!)

Rosh Hashanah is the autumn holiday when Jewish families combine religious worship with festivity to celebrate the Jewish New Year. This story's family visits their synagogue where the Shofar is blown to encourage the congregation to perform good deeds in the new year. Later, at the family table, the kids share apples and honey with Mom and Dad. This delightful picture book depicts a typical Jewish family as they celebrate one of the year's most important holidays. The traditional warmth of the Jewish holidays are reflected in cheerful and attractive little stories that speak not only to Jewish children but to boys and girls of all faiths. On the last two pages of each book, the traditions and meanings of the holiday are summarized for parents to relate to their children. There are attractive color illustrations on every page.
