Jonah loves Shabbat. But this week, as he helps his family set the table for dinner, something unexpected happens: he gets the hiccups! His sister, grandma, mom, cousin, and dad all suggest remedies, but no matter what Jonah does—eat sugar, hold his breath, have someone shout, “Boo!”—those hiccups simply won’t go away. Will his uncontrollable hiccups disrupt the festivities?
