Press Your Own Grape Juice

You can have a lot of fun pressing your own grape juice for Shabbat.


Whether you grow your own grapevine in a garden or a flowerpot, pick your own grapes at a farm, or purchase ripe grapes from a farmer's market or supermarket, the important thing is to enjoy yourself.

NOTE: It is very important to thoroughly wash your child's feet with soap and warm water both before crushing the grapes, and afterwards. Do not leave grape juice on their feet, as it may cause a rash.
