Rosh Hashanah is a very special day for the Orange County Jewish population because, it’s the beginning of the High Holy Days; also known as Yamim Nora’im. These days will begin on Sunday evening and end on Tuesday evening September 18th 2012. This special day also includes the sounding of the traditional shofar and eating many foods that are symbolic to the Jewish faith including: apples that are dipped in delicious honey.
Make Rosh Hashanah Different
If you’re planning on celebrating Rosh Hashanah and are searching for ideas to make the 2012 Rosh Hashanah unique, here’s a list of a few things that you can do to make this years celebration different:
- Go organic – Instead of buying apples from your local grocery store, why not pick them from a local farmers market? You can find the best markets in Orange County online and the great thing is that most orchards also sell honey as well so you can buy organic honey at the same time you buy your apples.
- Organic Wine – For the wine that you drink during Rosh Hashanah why not try drinking a kosher wine that’s also organic as well? Many vineyards are now using “sustainable” practices for growing their grapes so you can drink a wine that’s healthy for you and also helps the environment at the same time.
- Rethink chicken soup – If you’re not in the mood to have the traditional chicken soup during Rosh Hashanah you might try something different like a vegetable soup instead of just chicken soup. There are hundreds of great recipes online for vegetable soup that are very easy to fix.
We at Fred Sed & Associates wish you a happy Rosh Hashanah as you spend time with your family and wish many blessings to you during this sacred time.
