Coming Jewish New Year Makes Brooklyn Beekeepers Busy

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, the celebration of which begins this coming Sunday evening, September 16, and ends the following Tuesday, is a time to enjoy honey. Today’s Daily News quotes a Brooklyn Heights beekeper:

“I sell half of my supply in the weeks leading up to Rosh HaShana,” said David Glick, 27, who has two hives on a rooftop on Court Street in Brooklyn Heights.

“I don’t make any money,” said Glick expecting to sell twenty 6-ounce jars of his Heights Honey for $10 each before the holiday. “My mom loves it. She gives it to all her friends. It’s a unique gift.”
