Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which begins on Friday night, September 15, is a time seen as the potential for life, blessing, and sustenance for the entire year. Our actions for Rosh Hashanah set the tone for the year to come.
Experience a special lavish Rosh Hashanah meal you will not soon forget, outdoors under the stars, starting at 7:30 pm for Rosh Hashanah services followed by the meal at 8 pm.
Join Boulder Center for Judaism for a tasty Rosh Hashanah meal with different traditional foods passed down in Jewish tradition for generations.
We begin the meal with round homemade challot. The round shape is symbolic of the cyclical nature of the year.
We eat apples dipped in honey wishing for a good and sweet year. Perhaps the most popular Rosh Hashanah food is honey. Honey symbolizes our prayer to G-d that we be granted a SWEET new year.
The symbolism of eating the head of the fish is that we aspire to be on the top and not on the bottom.
We eat Tzimmes (Sweet carrots) as a play on words in the Yiddish language of “Mehren” hoping that our merits increase.
These are some of the foods eaten on Rosh Hashanah, however, also enjoy homemade Gefilte Fish, golden matzah ball soup and delicious roasted chicken and more. There are vegetarian options as well.
The cost is only $20 per adult, $12 per child.
