Rosh Hashanah Recipes

Ever year at Rosh Hashanah we wish our family and friends a "sweet year." But Jewish tradition encourages us to engage all our tastebuds when thinking about the year to come.

  • Simanim - Symbolic Foods
    If there's anything Jews love as much as food, it's superstitions. Simanim combine both, telling us what to eat for an auspicious New Year.
  • Toasting the New Year
    While it may not be traditional to raise a glass in honor of the Jewish New Year, that doesn't mean we can't concoct special cocktails for the occasion.
