Lepage Food & Drinks has you covered with a full-on Rosh Hashanah feast. (Lepage Food & Drinks)
Chag sameach! Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Jewish New Year, runs from September 25-27 this year. The holiday is typically celebrated with a variety of symbolic foods to bring prosperity: pomegranate for a fruitful year, challah to represent the cycle of the year, and apples and honey to usher in plenty of sweetness. We've compiled a list of ideas for your holiday festivities here, including specials from Kachka, Leikam Brewing, and more. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.
