Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is a time to welcome a shift in the seasons while rejoicing in the New Year and reflecting on the year that has passed. Food is of utmost importance in Jewish tradition and is often used symbolically. Apples, honey and pomegranates symbolize a sweet and abundant New Year, while noodle kugel, brisket and stewed or roasted root vegetables with dried fruit (known as tzimmes) have become mainstays in many Jewish feasts. Make sure to dip a slice of apple in honey, but plan on these picks for the rest of your Rosh Hashanah celebration.
