It's time to order honey!

We have begun taking orders for Sisterhood's "Health, Happiness & Honey for a Sweet New Year!"

Order online or download an order form to fill out and return.

Pricing this year starts at only $13.50 per bottle (includes shipping within continental US). Volume discounts are available with 15 or more orders.

Erev Rosh Hashanah is September 20th.  Orders must be received by August 20th.


Instead of cards this year… send honey! Erev Rosh Hashanah is September 20! This year, send 100% pure and raw HONEY to your friends and family for a unique “Sweet New Year” greeting the “Texas” way.

Temple Beth-El Sisterhood offers you a sweet way to send Rosh Hashanah greetings to friends and family. We will send a festively wrapped, 8 oz. jar of 100% pure and raw locally produced Texas honey along with a personalized New Year’s greeting and an explanation of the significance of the tradition for only $13.50 a bottle (includes shipping within continental US).

We chose locally harvested raw Texas wildflower honey from Round Rock Honey.

What is “raw” honey? Raw honey is honey that has not been heated, pasteurized or processed in any way. Naturally Kosher (not certified), raw honey contains the vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, pollen and floral essences that make it such a wonderfully healing and healthy food — scrumptious, too!

Feel free to contact Robin Kressbach should you have any questions.
