Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year celebration, falls on the last weekend of September this year. Following the lunar Jewish calendar rather than Gregorian, Rosh Hashanah (literally Head of the Year) falls on the 1st of Tishrei each year, migrating between September 5th & 30th. This two-day celebration begins this year at sundown on September 28th (Erev Rosh Hashanah) and lasts until Shabat begins at sundown on the 30th. One of the many Rosh Hashanah traditions is to eat apples and honey - a symbol of our hope for a "sweet" new year - and while dipping apples in honey is the most simple snack, here are a few other ideas - all gluten free! - to help you plan ahead for your holiday baking. L'shanah tova! (Happy New Year!)
