here are 2 ways to join our brothers and sisters during this very Holy celebration!
reflection and renewal
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a time for gatherings, festive meals, reflection, and renewal. It is a time to come together with loved ones to celebrate the New Year and to reflect on the past year.
First, have a meal filled with symbolic foods that represent good wishes for the New Year.
After the meal, review your actions over the past year and consider ways to improve yourself, your community and your love and commitment to our Lord.
Eating sweet treats like apples dipped in honey is one of the most commonly known traditions during Rosh Hashana. This tasty treat represents the desire to have a sweet and fruitful New Year!
Another favorite on Rosh Hashana is eating pomegranates. This delicious fruit has 613 seeds which not only symbolises the 613 commandments of the Torah, but also represents the amount of good deeds you will perform in the upcoming year!
