Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

We have been learning about Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur in our RE lessons. We learned that this is a time when Jewish people reflect on the decisions they’ve made and make amends for any wrongdoing, ready to start a new year. We’ve been talking about times when we have said sorry or someone has apologized to us. During this time, Jewish people enjoy a feast of Challah bread, pomegranate and apple and honey. On this occasion, the challah bread is made as a round loaf to symbolize the circle of the year. The pomegranate seeds represent the 613 commandments from the Bible and the apple and honey is to welcome in a sweet new year. Mrs Jones spoiled us today by baking us a challah loaf at home and bringing it in for us all to share.

So, L’shana tova to you all! (Happy New Year!)

    Ula was looking forward to this all week! However, she loved the food so much that she now wants me to make it all at home! 😆
