Many people know about the custom of eating apples dipped in honey on Rosh HaShanah , but there are many more food-related customs for the Jewish New Year.
Sweet foods are popular, to symbolise the sweet year we hope will follow. In the Sephardic community, many families hold a Rosh Hashanah seder where a series of symbolic foods are eaten before the meal.
Each of the chosen foods —generally a pomegranate, date, string bean, beet, pumpkin, leek, and fish head — symbolise a wish or blessing for prosperity and health in the coming year.
