I am extremely grateful to dear Esmé for having me as a guest on her blog and giving me this opportunity to share my Rosh Hashanah recipes. Contrary to a common belief that Rosh Hashanah is  Jewish New Year, it isn’t really so.  It is the beginning of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar, rather than the first, and it literally means The Head of the Year. However, in a way it is, because it is the anniversary of Creation, and we wish each other a Good Year and a Sweet Year. Every dish on Rosh Hashanah menu has special meaning, many of them also carry special blessings, and most of them are sweet. You will find a list of links with recipes under every picture; all you have to do is click! Note that two different cakes (White Leikach and Onik Leikach) are on the table from the beginning and throughout the Seuda – festive meal.

    Dear Beautiful People, this is a guest post I did for the awesome, great and wonderful Esme the Recipe Hunter. It is a compilation of all my traditional Rosh Hashana recipes, and you have them on time to try some of them, if you so desire.
    A quick update: Hurricane Irma came and went without causing too much damage to South Beach where we stubbornly stayed, at home with three cats. We lost power, though, so the moment roads became safe to travel, we joined our friends who do have electricity, and are about to start making delicious Hawaiian Poke (see here)
    We are fine, and so are the kitties!

  3. Dearest Esme, we haven’t gotten our power yet after Hurricane Irma’s visit, so I am remiss in addressing my social obligations. I apologize!
    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your getting this out, and getting it out on time!
    You rock! 😻
