No bees, no honey, no Rosh Hashanah. Sweet. The Calgary Jewish Community Centre (JCC) is hosting a “beeswax and sweetness marketplace” this week, Tuesday, September 27th from 3 to 7 pm.
Rosh Hashanah – Jewish New Year – begins at sunset, next Sunday (October 2). For most, the day includes a taste of apple sweetened with honey. It’s a hope for a good, sweet year ahead.
This year’s market at the JCC: “No bees, no honey, no Rosh Hashanah” is a nice reminder of the bees’ role in the world.
From the JCC website: Apples & honey tastings, cartis bracha (greeting cards) crafts. Everybody welcome. Free admission.
I’ll be there. Events like this really bring communities together. If you’re in Calgary, drop by. If you are in England or New Zealand, there is still time to fly in. Let me know.
