For the Kids
Summer is over, now the real work starts. Last week we remembered hard-working Americans on Labor Day. But that's nothing compared to the work we Jews will do over the next two weeks -- on our souls. There will be a lot of hard-core thinking: What did I do that I won't do again? What do I want to do better? How can I learn to be a more generous, considerate person? And how will I show it?
"Apples Dipped in Honey for Rosh Hashanah" is a song many of you know. Well, how about honey dipped in apples? Here's a great idea for a Personal Honey Bowl.
Core the apple, but make sure you do not go through the bottom. Use the spoon to scoop out more of the apple. If your apple has absolutely no holes, you will not need a cup. Just pour the honey straight into the apple hole. Now each person at your table can dip their apple slice in the honey that's in the apple.
