Rosh Hashanah translates to mean 'head of the year' and is the Jewish New Year. This year Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset on September 6th and is celebrated with sweet symbolic food like apples and honey. This 2 day festival marks the anniversary of human creation and the special relationship between humans and the Creator. The Jewish calendar differs from today's Gregorian calendar. The Jewish calendar is based on the cycles of the moon and this Rosh Hashanah is celebrating the year 5782.
Here is a traditional Rosh Hashanah verse or song to share with your children as you enjoy a sweet snack of apples and honey.
A good year
A year of peace
And joy increase.
Whether you welcome routine, or resist it, we're here to tell you why you should embrace it.
At Daily Wonder we talk a lot about rhythm and routine. That’s because we know that young children feel a sense of good health when they are held by boundaries, including the lay-out of the day, week, month…. Children are meant to learn through play and doing until they reach high school. This means we need to provide them with lots of activities that spark their creativity and provide space for wonder. When they know what is expected of them children are freed up to be in the moment. It is up to the adults to create the boundaries to free the children.
