Apples and Honey Host{ess} Gifts for the Jewish New Year

For the last 25 years we have been tasked with finding a gift for our Rosh Hashana dinner hosts. And every year we end up running out at the last minute to buy an ok gift but nothing particularly thoughtful or special. This year we have vowed to order a gift from GiftTree, tonight, so it will arrive by Erev Rosh Hashana (Sunday September 9th, 2018). These three very special gifts work equally well as host{ess} gifts for Yom Kippur Break the Fast as they do for Rosh Hashana dinner. And although GiftTree has a huge selection of gifts from which to choose, we decided to narrow our choice to apples and honey gifts. Continue Reading →

Rosh Hashanah New Year Cards

In secular society, January 1st is the official start of the new year but for Jewish people world wide, Rosh Hashanah marks the new year and new beginnings.  For me, Rosh Hashana is one of my very favorite Jewish holidays. It is generally celebrated in September or early October. We cannot give you an exact date since the Hebrew lunar calendar is only 354 days verses 365 days in the solar calendar so the days don't line up the same every year. For example, Rosh Hashana 2018 begins on the evening of September 9th whereas the next year the holiday starts on the evening of September 29, 2019. This often coincides with the onset of a new school year. Growing up, when we went back to school shopping we also picked up a new Fall outfit for the High Holidays. To this day we buy a school calendar (September – September) rather than the traditional January to January calendar. It seems more organic, more intuitive. Continue Reading →

Our Favorite Jewish New Year Gifts

Today, as we are running around at the last minute searching for a Rosh Hashana dinner host{ess} gift, we realize we should have planned ahead.  Yep, we messed up and ended up buying a boring box of chocolates rather than bringing something truly memorable. So we went back to our earlier Rosh Hashanah post and reminded ourselves just how much we love both of these Nambe Honey Pots and Dippers. They are perfect for Rosh Hashana dinner and equally perfect as a host{ess} gift for Break the Fast.
