Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins September 18 this year.
These are two of my favorite books for Rosh Hashanah.
In New Year at the Pier: A Rosh Hashanah Story, Izzy thinks about things he feels sorry for, and he offers apologies—some simple and easy, some complicated and tough. “Tashlich means to throw” explains the rabbi in the story, and amid the music and prayers of the Tashlich ceremony, Izzy finds a way to throw out his old regrets and make room in his heart.
Every year, on the day before Rosh Hashanah, the rabbi disappears. Some of the people in his village thinks he rises to heaven. Reuven sets out to find the truth. And it turns out to be even more amazing than anyone had imagined.
