From the introduction:
In this game, you’ll play members of a Jewish family gathered for Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the Jewish new year. On Rosh Hashanah, G-d determines your fate for the next year: you are written in the Book of Life, or your name is blotted out. During the week between now and Rosh Hashanah, you have a chance to contemplate on your misdeeds of the past year and repent. And on Yom Kippur, a week from today, your fate will be sealed. The upcoming reckoning with your transgressions sits in the back of your mind. But for now, you have survived another year. It is time to give thanks, reconnect with your family, and most importantly, eat.
