and culminating with
Simchat Torah, takes in near-

If you're still wrestling with menus,
the recipe page has everything from
challahs to kugels. At the same page,
learn about the symbolic foods of the
holidays — not just the apples and
honey you already know, but also the
ones you may not, like leeks and beets,
pomegranates and sheep heads!
Save yourself postage and a trip to the
mailbox. Aish.com has free holiday
greetings cards, too.
Now, return to the Holidays page and
scope out Sukkot. Be sure to read
"Recycling Lulav and Esrog."
www.aish.com is an attractive Web
site, easy to navigate. There's a lot of
the reading-sort of media here, but
there's some video and audio, too.
Best of all, the content is interesting
Wishing everyone fshanah tovah and
peace in 5763. ❑
