It’s almost Rosh Hashanah, the annual Jewish new year! And to celebrate, in this hilarious video, Mayim and her sons got together with a couple of friends – who happen to be in a famous Jewish a cappella group that had a viral video sensation! – to explain some of the rituals and symbolic foods of Rosh Hashanah. You’ve heard of apples and honey? (Or in Mayim’s vegan household, apples and agave…) Learn about some other symbolic foods, many of them are explained with puns to keep things fun…

(In a lovely – and totally unplanned! – coincidence, GrokNation editor Esther K. wrote a piece about Rosh Hashanah’s symbolic foods in the Jewish Journal, so check it out here for more facts and pun fun…)

Mayim also shows off her impressive shofar-blowing skills– and tells you how she learned to play this ancient instrument…

So, whether you’re Jewish or not, pull up a seat and learn about Rosh Hashanah right here! Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!
