Toby Belfer and the High Holy Days
Help one another. Say you’re sorry. Toby remembers what her rabbi said in his sermon for Rosh Hashanah, and she plans on being a good citizen, giving to charity, apologizing for anything that might have hurt someone, and helping others. After saying “sorry” to her best friend, Donna, Toby helps her understand all of the customs involved with the Jewish New Year. Before sharing Gram’s recipe for honey cake, Toby realizes that by retelling the story of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur she learns a lot herself.
