Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Happy Rosh Hashanah!

We're celebrating Rosh Hashanah, September 4 - 6!

This holiday celebrates the Jewish New Year and families all over the world get together to reflect on how the past year has been spent. It marks the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. Customs include the sounding of the shofar, a ram's horn-shaped instrument used specifically for this holiday.

Traditional foods include apples dipped in honey to symbolize hopes for a sweet new year and challah bread, which is round to symbolize the circle of life or the cycle of a new year. Other traditional foods include dates, black-eyed peas, pomegranates, leeks, spinach and fish. You can find all of these at your local Fiesta if you're preparing a meal for your family.

If you or someone you know is celebrating Rosh Hashanah, be sure to wish them L'shanah Tova, or a Happy New Year!
