Scenes from the Pre-Rosh Hashanah Celebration: Apples, Honey and Bees
Last night, Rabbi Danielle Stillman spoke with Lehigh students in the College of Education’s mountaintop garden. The group feasted on honey sweetened bread and apples, and discussed the tradition of eating sweet foods to welcome in a sweet new year. They also learned about the Lehigh University Apiary, and where honey comes from.
Lehigh University student Katelyn Armbruster spent the summer growing vegetables in the Lehigh Community Garden on the Goodman Campus. She donates her harvest to New Bethany Ministries in South Side Bethlehem. During the garden season she harvests, packs individual bags, and delivers the produce to both the food pantry and the kitchen twice a week. She’s also prepping the garden beds for fall crops. You can read more about her story here.
You still have time to get to Linderman Library for the 4pm ceremony. The Tibetan monks will be sweeping away the sand mandala they’ve been making for the past two days. Come quickly to see this beautiful artwork before it is returned to the river.
