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, from special meals from Dingfelder's Delicatessen, Muriel's, and Zylberschtein's to challah and other treats. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.
