The Sweetest Alef-Beis Pekalach

Photography by Hudi Greenberger

Bringing a three-year-old boy wrapped in a tallis to a cheder to lick honey off the alef-beis letters is one of the most beautiful and pure minhagim there is. Add a honey stick and an alef-beis chart to your upsheren pekaleh so all the children can join in the sweetness. Alternately, add a small package of crayons to color the chart.

You will need:

  • candy wrapped in a box or cellophane bag (the box I used was 4½x7 inches)
  • 4¼x6¾-inch alef-beis chart (free download available at Estherodesign.com)
  • honey stick
