Do Now: Follow the directions for this Rosh Hashanah assignment closely and ask your teacher any questions you might have.
(1) Memorize the following Hebrew phrase: Shana Tova Umetukah. A good and sweet year.
(2) Repeat this over and over to yourself as you head home; after all, wishful thinking in another language is still wishful thinking. And if you happen to bump into any of God’s chosen people on your way back, practice your new found Hebrew skills. It will most likely delight them and it will make you happier as you scurry home to change out of your teaching clothes into something more appropriate for Buddy Guy’s event at Jake’s Dilemma.
