what do we eat at Rosh Hashanah?

Let’s face it, so many of the Jewish festivals are focused on the rituals of the food we eat. It’s the getting together as a family, a community or simply the gathering around a wonderfully noisy table combined with the tradition of eating your favourite foods.

So, as we build up to Rosh Hashanah this year, we’ve been asking our customers what they’re most likely to eat as they celebrate. Compiled below are some of the most popular food choices with a little explanation to help you get in the festive mood!

Why not buy small challah rolls for each of your guests? We make all our challahs at our off-site bakery and they are delivered fresh each morning to Panzer’s.
