Today is the last day of Rosh Hashanah. In observance of the Jewish holiday, we put together a celebratory Flatbed Friday!
Feast your eyes on apples and honey in high resolution… we couldn’t help but add a little bit of festive confetti as well!
One of the most popular Rosh Hashanah traditions is the dipping of apples into honey, symbolizing the hope for a “sweet” year to come.
In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means “head of the year” or “first of the year.” It is commonly known as the Jewish New Year, which is somewhat misleading. Rosh Hashanah is one of the holiest, most introspective holidays, in stark contrast to the New Year that comes on January 1st.
There is, however, one important similarity — many people use the New Year as a time to start fresh, making “resolutions” and setting goals. Likewise, the Jewish New Year is a time to look back at the past year and plan changes to make in year ahead.
We wish everyone the sweetest of new years. What changes will you make?
