Last night, I went to a Rosh Hashanah card making event at Paper Source and learned a lot about traditional Jewish foods to celebrate the New Year. How timely, since the Jewish New Year is just around the corner – the celebration begins on Sunday, September 16th.
There are many recipes highlighting each of the symbolic foods, and I would like to share the recipes that I have made in the past. Fair warning – not all of them are strictly kosher. Enjoy!
The traditional Challah, Apples, and Honey – for a sweet year. Round Challah is traditional for New Year.
Beets – to remove adversaries from your life. Beet, Orange, and Avocado Salad
Carrots – to increase the merits. Slice the carrots into round disks to symbolize coins. Apple Aand Carrot Cole Slaw with Grapes and Basil
Dates – to protect against the enemies. Or to bring you more dates 🙂 Rolled Date, Golden Raisin, and Almond Challah Rolls
Whatever you will have on your table this Sunday to celebrate the New Year, I hope you are surrounded by friends and family, joy, and good wishes for the year!
