Honey cakes are traditionally eaten on Rosh Hashana. Onik is Yiddish for honey, and Leikach  is most probably derived from German leck – lick, as in “licking the honey.” That’s easy. We use honey all over the place on Rosh Hashana in order to have a sweet year; we even wish each other “a zis yor” – a sweet year.  But where did all these honey customs come from? Surely, they had sugar in ancient Israel, didn’t they? Actually, they didn’t, and honey was the only known sweetener.
