Rabbi Corey Visits San Carlos Elms
Rabbi Corey took time out of his busy schedule to educate our Residents on the holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year festival, held on the first (also sometimes the second) day of Tishri (in September). It is marked by the blowing of the shofar, and begins the ten days of penitence culminating in Yom Kippur.
Rabbi Corey also introduced the Residents to some of the food that they eat during this time.
San Carlos Elms cook was able to prepare sliced apples, honey and honey bread with almonds.
We all learned a lot. Thank you Rabbi Corey!!!
Bessie enjoyed her sliced apples with honey.
Above is all the wonderful food prepared and the horn that Rabbi Corey blew for the Residents to hear.
