Simanim

On Rosh HaShanah, it is customary to eat symbolic foods that express our hopes and aspirations for the new year. As we take a bite, we pray for, among other things, a sweet new year (the famous apple in the honey), the destruction of our enemies (this requires more than just one food!) and an increase in both our individual merits and those of the Jewish people.

These foods can be served raw or cooked and presented creatively. My good friend Debby used an artist’s palette last year to display her treats.

Here are just a few possible recipes that make use of the simanim and get us fully involved in the blessings they invoke. We’d love to know what you use.

Leek Patties with Meat
Pumpkin Tarts
Coconut Date Balls
