Sunday Post: Delicious

 

Honey and apples are a staple at many meals during this time on the Jewish calendar. In fact, we drizzle honey over many food items during the holidays signifying our wishes for a sweet new year. Everywhere one turns, there are honey cakes, honey-apple bars, honey and date cookies. Various fruits, common and exotic, adorn our tables. This is a festive time (Rosh Hoshana through Simchas Torah) as we celebrate the beginning of a new year and enjoy tasty delicacies that are both symbolic and delicious.

Time for the Holidays!

No photography today. I’m too busy. Wow, never thought I’d say that about photography, but this evening Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, begins at sundown. I am busy cleaning, cooking and preparing for this and the other holidays to follow. We will feast on apples and honey and honey cakes for the next three weeks as we wish each other a sweet and prosperous new year. I will go missing for a few days each week as we celebrate and observe the holy days, and I will get behind in visiting your blogs. It can’t be helped. I will be back in a few days and I’m sure there will be lots to tell. Until then, L’Shana Tovah!
