KDH children did lots to prepare for Rosh Hashana. It culminated in the classroom with a Rosh Hashana party. We ate round challah and apple dipped in honey and other symbolic foods, which included pomegranates, dates, beets, carrots/tzimmes, and fish heads and fish (crackers).
When we came back to school after the holiday we asked the children,
"KDH, what did you do over Rosh Hashana?"
Reyn – I dipped the apple in the honey. When Rosh Hashana was over, I had my honey cake because I didn’t have it on Rosh Hashana.
Freeda – I did Tashlich with my Tatty and dipped apples in honey. I gave my Tatty his shofar and helped my mommy bake.
Ilan – I went to Boston to visit my cousins and I went to shul on Rosh Hashana. There were kid’s services I went to.
Dovid – I ate my honey cake on Rosh Hashana and I lit the candle with my mom.
Elijah – I heard the shofar at home, two of my cousins tried to blow it.
Amitai – I went to Granny’s friend’s house and my Granny’s house two times. I dipped the apple in the honey and said the Bracha.
Chana – I helped set the table. I saw the teeth of the fish head, they were tiny.
Tirza – I heard the shofar at my synagogue.
Micah – I went to New York to my cousins.
Jayme – I played outside and climbed the trees with my dad.
Lily – I went to Grannymom’s and Poppy’s house and we planted flowers and had a special party just for G-d. I dipped the apples in the honey and I blew the shofar and said all the blessings.
Mina – I had a little party with my Bubby and got an extra treat. My mom let me have some of Leeba’s honey cake she made at school. We also bought special cookies for Rosh Hashana and I had about five. They had blue sprinkles on them. My Daddy and Bubby ate the head of the fish and I heard Rabbi Schusterman blow all the sounds of the shofar.
Jules – I ate sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies that my mom made.Lewis – I stayed at home with my dad, mom, sister and dog. I tried my challah.
Rikki – I slept at my Uncle Dovid’s house. He has three girls and one boy. I played with Sima and Luba, Luba Levin. Uncle Dovid went to see if the museum was open on Rosh Hashana but it wasn’t. Motty only ate apple dipped in honey and I only ate pomegranate.
