Rosh Hashanah and High Holiday Recipes

At Rosh Hashanah tables in Israel and around the world, many Jewish families celebrate with honey and fruit, hoping they will foretell a sweet year ahead.

Many of the recipes in this collection highlight the best ingredients of the season like grapes in Haim Cohen’s beef bourguignon, and eggplant with apples and honey from Ayelet Latovitch. You will also find recipes for sweet carrots and beef kofta curry from the community of Baghdadi Jews of India and our partners at the Jewish Food Society.

Wishing you a sweet and happy year!
