We are preparing to celebrate the Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashanah. Part of this is eating symbolic foods. I have been preparing our unit study for the coming week on Rosh Hashanah and I came across the prayer we are to say when/if we serve fish.
we recite: "May we be fruitful and multiply like fish."
I think maybe we will just serve beef..... don't get me wrong, I love my children. But I am content. I can't lie to God, and I KNOW he has a sense of humor.. I would rather not risk it.
