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.
While we can’t be together in person this year, we thought it might fun to invite community members to download the “Recipe Template”, and share their favourite recipe (with a picture if possible) by sending it [email protected] so we can upload it here.
