INSIGHT INTO JUDAISM
APPLES & HONEY
According to Judaism, Rosh Hashanah is the mark of a new year, it being the traditional anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman according to the Hebrew Bible, and their first actions toward the believed realization of humanity's role in God's world.
Rosh Hashanah is first of the Jewish High Holy Days, specified by Leviticus 23:23-32.
Eve Sorin / "Apples and honey are the perfect metaphor for the beginning of the year or in any time of change - both satisfy the sweet tooth that comes with a new year filled with unlimited possibilities."
Ally Rothschild / "Rosh Hashanah is a time when I reflect on past successes and failures and look forward to my journey ahead in the sweet new year with apples and honey."
