Our Rosh HaShana

Rosh HaShana, the Jewish New Year.
A wonderful time to celebrate as a family the year that has passed and to contemplate the year ahead! We had a very special evening together.
There was the noise of the shofar being blown, the dipping of apples into honey, the blessings we read and shared to one another for the new year, and the dancing around the living room that followed.
Here is a small glimpse into our evening.
May it be a fruitful new year!

Daddy and Shalev blowing the Shofar!
(We went a little cheap this year as these are simple handmade shofars that i put together using toilet rolls, masking tape and a party blower. But they sounded AMAZINGLY authentic!!)

Shana Tova!
Have a blessed New Year!
