Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. The holiday food is apples dipped in honey and a round challah - egg bread. Usually challah is made in a braid, but at Rosh Hashanah it is round. At our house, we have both plain and raisin challah. The challah gets dipped in honey, too. Then we wish each other L'Shanah Tova! A sweet New Year.

Here is a special challah cover just for Rosh Hashanah. It says L'Shanah Tova in Hebrew. At each corner is a pomegranate - a traditional Rosh Hashanah decoration.

It is knit of acrylic yarn and lined with cotton broadcloth. You can find it here Challah Cover
