Content Rating

  • Izzy's favorite part of Rosh Hashanah is Tashlich, a joyous ceremony in which people apologize for the mistakes they made in the previous year and thus clean the slate as the new year begins. But there is one mistake on Izzy's "I'm sorry" list that he's finding especially hard to say out loud.

    Humor, touching moments between family and friends, and lots of information about the Jewish New Year are all combined in this lovely picture book for holiday sharing.
  • Izzy is a little boy who especially enjoys Tashlich, a ceremony performed at Rosh Hashanah whereby people confess their wrongdoings and begin the New Year with a fresh start.  Nieces and nephews will relate to Izzy as he grows upset about revealing his long list of “mistakes," but realizes the value in making amends.  Overall, this is a touching, humorous story that entertains and teaches young ones a lot about the holiday along the way.
