Wish you friends a Happy Jewish New Year on Rosh HaShanah
Rosh HaShanah is a time for family and friends, shofars blasting, heaps of food and of course – round Challah!
The Jewish New Year, literally translated to “Head of the Year,” is celebrated in the fall (September) and is a time of introspection and repenting, asking for forgiveness for your transgressions and starting fresh.
As far as holiday food goes, we eat round Challah on Shabbat symbolizing the full circle of a year, we dip apples in honey symbolizing a sweet year to come, eat pomegranates for fertility, gorge on gourds, cabbage, carrots, leeks, spinach, and feast on fresh fruit.
