Anafim is really getting ready for Rosh Hashana. We have also been exploring the Rosh Hashanah seder as practiced by different Jewish communities around the world. We looked at the portion of the Talmud that suggests eating symbolic foods at the start of the new year.

We then came up with ideas for why the rabbis might suggest the foods they did and came up with puns to suggest our own symbols for what we want to accomplish in the coming year. We can’t wait to share our illustrations of the book of Jonah and artistic representations of our chosen symbols!
