In this episode...

Today’s episode is all about fun, easy ways to celebrate the Jewish new year festival of Rosh Hashanah! I’m joined by Sam and Emily from the Smashing Life team and we talk about the reflective and spiritual side of Rosh Hashanah as well as the fun, festive rituals, both the traditional and the more modern ones. There’s plenty of real talk too as we get into what it’s like planning for a Jewish holiday when we live in a non-Jewish world, and all the life lessons we’ve learned from this past year.

You’ll find out:
