New Quiz: Rosh Hashanah

By at 2:07 pm

To start of the Jewish New Year, we’ve got a new quiz all about Rosh Hashanah. From the instruments we play to the traditions we keep to the foods we eat (because really, what Jewish holiday would be complete without food?) this test has all your Rosh Hashanah bases covered.

It’s no stumper, either, so you may want to gather your toddler and preschooler and teach them a thing or two. Remember, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Wednesday, September 28th.
