The Jewish New Year is a time to reflect, make memories with family and enjoy the food customs and traditions that come hand in hand with the holiday. One of the oldest Jewish traditions of Rosh Hashanah is the belief that eating sweet foods will help express hope for a sweet new year. The custom of pairing apples and honey, two sweet foods, together symbolizes this hope for a bright future.
