Rosh Hashanah Recipes

It is customary on Rosh Hashanah to eat foods that are sweet. This symbolizes the "sweetness and good fortune" of the New Year ahead.

Foods flavored with honey, apples and carrots are often on the menu. The Rosh Hashanah meal begins with apple and challah dipped in honey.

Rosh HashanaChallah is the bread usually eaten on the Sabbath. You will most often see it in a braided loaf, but for Rosh Hashanah the challah is round - symbolizing the cycle of the New Year.

Yom Kippur itself is a day of fasting. It literally means Day of Atonement and is a very solemn, holy day. Rosh Hashanah is a day of celebration and fine foods.

This small selection of celebratory Jewish dishes may help make your holiday a little more festive and traditional at the same time.
