Traditionally, Rosh Hashanah celebrates the celebrates the beginning of man’s existence and of his relationship with God. It’s also the beginning of the High Holidays, which will culminate in Yom Kippur, beginning on October 3rd.
But the holiday is not just for the religious. Many, religious or not, use the two days of Rosh Hashanah as a time of reflection and to ask themselves how they can be better people in the coming year. People make resolutions, but typically not like the resolutions of January 1st, which are often more trivial. While you might vow to get in shape on January 1st, on Rosh Hashanah, you might commit to working at a homeless shelter in the coming year.
But what is a holiday without food? On Rosh Hashanah, people typically “toast” the new year with honey and apples, for a sweet new year. It’s also a gathering time for family, which means a time for feasting.
Here are some lovely recipes for your High Holiday meals.
However you celebrate the new year, Ninja Movers wishes you a Shana Tova!
