Rosh Hashanah Menu (complete with recipes)
Rosh Hashanah is an event replete in symbolic significance. The customs, rituals and traditions all bear paramount symbolic significance. So is the food. Every food taken on Rosh Hashanah has its own message to convey.

Some facts about Rosh Hashanah

  • Rosh Hashanah begins the ten day period known as Yamim Noraim (translates as "Days of Awe") which is ended with Yom Kippur.

  • The time of Yamim Noraim is supposed to be the most holy of Jewish holidays, a time of examining the self, and a time of repentance.

  • The blowing of a "shofar" (a ram's horn made into a trumpet) is used as the symbol of approaching judgment.

  • "Shana Tova", translating into "A Good Year" is a traditional greeting for Rosh Hashanah. Also "Ketiva Ve-Chatima Tovah", which means "May You Be Written and Sealed for a Good Year" is used to symbolize God's judgment for the upcoming year.

  • A common addition to meals during Rosh Hashanah are apples and honey, which are meant to embody "a sweet new year". In fact, there are many recipes that include those 2 ingredients.
