& Taylor

On Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, it is traditional to dip apples and honey in hopes of a sweet New Year. Jews around the world share other foods as well - such as pomegranates, pumpkins, beets, and dates - foods that grow abundantly and symbolize prosperity. Author Rahel Musleah, who grew up in Calcutta, India, presents a Sephardic Rosh Hashanah seder observed throughout the world. This special service incorporates blessings, songs, and even folk tales relating to each of the eight foods eaten, and will guide participants through this joyous seder. Traditional holiday recipes are included.
