NUMBER THE STARS JEWISH NEW YEAR: In chapter 6 of Lois Lowry's novel, Number The Stars, we learn that Ellen's family will soon be celebrating Jewish New Year. The novel does not provide much detail about the celebrations, but the reader knows it is very important to the Rosens. After reading this chapter, have students do some independent online research to understand the customs and traditions of Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) with this ready to use web quest.
