"Mom, when is Rosh Hashana?", a little boy asked his mother, still a bit sleepy, as she woke him. "I am looking forward to Erev Chag (New Year's Eve)!"
While Rosh Hashana is still a few weeks away, most children are looking forward to the approaching festivities, the festive family meal and, of course, the short school break.
There is one little problem. The summer vacation isn't over yet!! Kids will be going back to school this Friday, September 1st after a 2 month break.
And during all this excitement there are children that are poor and needy that only look forward to surviving today not knowing what tomorrow will bring!
Do you have a heart for children?
