Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

Besides Apples and Honey, there are other symbolic foods (simanim) that are eaten on Rosh Hashanah. Some of these simanim vary depending on the families that have a Sephardic or Ashkenazi origin.

A blessing is recited for each symbolic food and their name relates to the words in the blessing. We wish for G-d's protection, for a sweet year ahead, forgiveness, and the opportunity to do better the following year.

It's the Jewish mystical way to ask G_d to answer our hopes and prayers, it is also a time of reflection over the past year and a time of renewal to improve ourselves for the year to come.

Symbolic Foods (Simanim)

Some customs may vary

  • Apples and Honey
  • Leeks
  • Swiss Chard or Spinach for Sephardim and Beets for Ashkenazim
  • Gourd, squash, or zucchini
  • Black-eyed peas for Sephardim or Carrots for Ashkenazim
  • Dates
  • Pomegranates
  • Head of Fish or Lamb
