Translated from Hebrew as the “head of the year” Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year and one of the holiest days in the Jewish calendar. It’s also a time to reflect on the previous year while letting go of old habits. It's also the time to prep yourself with a number of traditions for a prosperous new year.
Rosh Hashanah begins with morning services and usually finishes with family around the dinner table. If you plan on bringing the family around your table for the first time don’t forget these Rosh Hashanah entertaining tips.
• Just like your January New Year's celebrations, make sure to dress your best, use your best table linens and tableware when family comes over to celebrate. It sets the tone for the year to come.
• Make sure to have apples slices and honey set out as your guests will use them to make a wish for a sweet new year.
• Set out challah bread, not the usually braided type, but a crown challah which represents the continued cycle of the new year.
