Shana Tova


I was invited to a Chabad Jewish New Year Dinner Friday night. I had a great time with great hosts.
At the end of the night the Rabbi gave out this special gift.
One of the traditions for the Jewish New Year is to eat sweet foods for a sweet year. There's a lot of symbolism in Judaism.
He handed this to us in the prescription bag in a medicine bottle: honey.
The camera had a hard time getting the words so here's what he said on the bottle:
Pharmacy of Heaven
Prescription for life!
Directions:
To be taken with apple of Challah or plain.
Dose: 1Tsp or more
Results May Vary
If joy does not kick in immediately try a double dose.
If joy and happiness lasts for more than 24 hours please
Thank G-d.
Very clever and creative! Thank you for such a wonderful start to the New Year.
