Apples & Honey: A Sweet Tradition

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and like most Jewish holidays there are food customs associated with it. Dipping apple slices into honey is one of the most popular and well-known food customs on Rosh Hashanah. The old Jewish tradition of eating sweet foods expresses the hope for a sweet new year.
Ancient Jews thought apples had healing properties. Whenever King Herod (73-4 B.C.E.) felt faint he would eat an apple, and during Talmudic times apples were frequently sent as gifts to people in ill health.

Did you know?

Rosh Hashanah
is a Hebrew word which literally means "head of the year".
