Excuse the spelling if incorrect.


We have some friends coming over for dinner tonight and one of them is Jewish. While we are not planning on doing a Rosh Hashana dinner, she asked if she could bring over a traditional cake for dessert to celebrate since she won't be with her family this year. So my question is this, is there a nice gesture that we could make to help her celebrate?


Thanks,

Wish her a happy new year.

say "L'shanah tovah" (for a good year) and have apples to dip in honey (symbolic wish for a sweet new year)

adding just a couple of things, showing you've made the effort to understand her culture, will be a huge blessing to her...

ChapperJoe may be of assistance, but since it's Saturday, I'm not sure if he'll be online...

The bacon jokes crack me up because I just got done eating bacon


I asked if she observed kosher because that would have driven the meal plan, but she does not. However this is the first time away from family on Rosh Hashana so being with friends is important and we want her to feel special even though we are goyim. We've all been friends for years and she's pregnant with her first so it is an exciting time.

By the by, is the L silent in L'shana tovah?

when she leaves, say "neshikot motek", then move in and give her a kiss, put some tongue in it. That's what I always do.

Wait, is this the holiday when we're supposed to fast?
