Mayim Bialik Explained Rosh Hashanah Food in the Most Adorable Video Ever

Mayim Bialik usually gives us insight into her parenting world (especially when it comes to raising Jewish kids), like why she eats vegan, why she became a lactation consultant, and more. Now she opened up her home to us–and gave us a quick lesson into the significance of the foods we eat on Rosh Hashanah (like apples and honey!) via a video she posted on Facebook.

She was joined by two members from the Maccabeats, as well as her two sons. The group makes a lot of excellent dad jokes (which makes it all the more endearing!), like, “We eat dates because it’s related to a word that means ‘to end.’ It’s a very old tradition–you might say we dated ourselves.” Gotta love it.
