About Rosh Hashana: Entertainment & Resources
As we enter the Jewish Holiday season of Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year), Yom Kippor and Sukkot, I thought it might be helpful to have some educational as well as entertaining resources at your fingertips. Here’s a list of some of the top websites where you can read up on the significance of the Jewish Holidays, where you can find some practical guidance and guidelines for the festival days, and where you can find some entertaining You Tube videos as well.
These sites deal with basic questions like ‘what is Rosh Hashana‘ as well as more complex issues such as ‘preparing for a three day yontif’ and the videos are musical, comical and uplifting!
Of course, all of these resources are FREE!
