Rosh Hashanah Resources
I am half Jewish, and I would like my daughter to celebrate this part of her cultural heritage. This is why we always read books and do a thing or two at least for Passover and Hanukkah. This year I decided to teach her more about Rosh Hashanah, a Jewish New Year. The festival of Rosh Hashanah—the name means “Head of the Year”—is observed for two days beginning on 1 Tishrei, the first day of the Jewish year. According to Hebrew tradition, it is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and the birthday of the world.
Here are some web resources for Rosh Hashanah activities and recipes:

Take action and fight hunger. Carrie from Crafty Moms Share and her daughter are already busy fighting hunger with other Moms for Moms Fighting Hunger. It’s not too late to think on how to celebrate National Hunger Action Month in September.
Make something pretty. Melinda at Look What Mom Found had her kids turn ordinary rocks into adorable painted fruits and vegetables.
Learn something new. Many great bloggers, both homeschoolers and afterschoolers, contributed their ideas to How Do I Teach? series hosted by Enchanted Homeschooling Mom. I am going to spend some time this weekend going through some of the entries in more detail.
