Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New year, is one of the holiest days of the Jewish year. It is a time of prayer and introspection and like most holidays, food plays a central role in its celebration and rituals. Apples and challah are dipped in honey for a sweet year, the challah bread is baked round to symbolize continuity and completion. Foods like pomegranates, fish, leeks, beets, and dates are also used as symbolic additions to the holiday table.
Some of our best and most delicious dishes are saved for holiday celebrations, either passed down through generations or modern updates on classic favorites. Share your recipes, tips, and menu ideas for the upcoming holiday.
