As the sun sets and the year begins with the observance of Rosh Hashanah, families across the Jewish world will sit down to enjoy food, family and companionship. These times together help us prepare for powerful spiritual experiences at our synagogues and in our communities.
As part of our observance, many of us will indulge in dishes with symbolic foods that are said to bring us wisdom, success, fortune and luck, such as apples, honey, carrots and beets.
Tradition teaches that our holiday meals should be grand feasts fit for royalty. We’re supposed to pull out all the stops to make these times something special, and there’s no better way to turn a good meal into a great meal than with some incredible seasonal cocktails.
