Journal 2- Delivering Honey Cakes

Since Thursday is Rosh Hashana, this week we did our annual mitzvah trip of delivering honey cakes to seniors. One or two cars went to River Garden and the Coves, and the rest went on planned routes. I went in a car that had a planned route. I was able to visit the Holocaust survivor that I interviewed last year, Hilda Warfield.

I think the most meaningful was this lady who we visited. We gave her the honey cake, and then she asked us to come in so we could meet her mother. Her mother was lying on her bed, and she was very thankful for us because she told us she wasn’t able to go to services this year. It was meaningful to me because we were her Rosh Hashana. The mitzvahs we were aiming to do were Honoring the Elderly and the mitzvah in celebrating Rosh Hashana. I think we did both of those mitzvahs with that one visit.

Have a happy, sweet new year! Eat lots of apples, honey, and honey cakes!

  1. I am glad that you enjoyed visiting her! Her grandchildren all attended the Day School. I am sure it meant a lot to her having our students take the time to visit her.
