Using a recipe Handmaker resident Betty Light shared, Bonnie Gottesman (left) and Rabbi Richard Safran were among a group of residents at Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging who enjoyed making honey cakes Sept. 25 in preparation for Rosh Hashanah. Some added nuts and/or raisins, depending on their individual tastes. Each resident had the opportunity to make one cake for themselves and one to share with a friend, as it is the custom to give others honey cake during the holiday to start off their sweet new year, says Nanci Levy, Handmaker’s community outreach coordinator.
