To get a head start on celebrations of the Jewish new year –Rosh Hashanah – Rosen JCC hosted a small family gathering Sept. 15 to serve as a pre-party for the annual holiday.
After some dinner, the kids were invited to participate in activities held at 3 different stations. The first station allowed the children to create new year cards which will be given to elderly at the Jewish Pavilion.
The second station encouraged kids to make round challahs, a popular, sweet pastry commonly eaten during the new year, and the third station permitted kids to write their new years wishes for their friends and family and hang them up on an apple tree poster.
This year, Rosh Hashanah will be held from the evening of Oct. 2 to Oct. 4.
