Rosh Hashanah Recipes, Crafts & Activity Ideas For Kids

Happy Rosh Hashanah to all of our Jewish readers! Tonight marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year and it will run straight through until Friday. I keep coming across great recipes, activities and crafts that you can make during the holidays and wanted to share my finds with you.

You may find that apples, honey, and carrots are the base of most of these recipes. That is because those three foods are eaten during Rosh Hashanah to symbolize the sweetness and good fortune of the coming year. In fact, traditionally the Rosh Hashanah meal begins by dipping apples and challah in honey.
