On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

Illustrated by: Melanie W. Hall
For Ages: 5 - 8
"Every year, people we know send cards to wish me and my family a happy and healthy New Year. La Shana Tova, they say in Hebrew."
How can you tell when it is time for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? The young girl in this story can tell when her family receives cards wishing them a happy New Year. They gather together to light candles for the holiday meal and say blessings over apples and honey. They go to synagogue to pray and hear the shofar. From New Year cards and having a special holiday meal, to worshiping at temple and sending the year's sins away on the river, the young narrator of this story describes each activity of the High Holy Days as she experiences this special time with her family.
