For over 2,000 years, Sephardic Jews have gathered around the Rosh Hashanah eve dinner table for a special ceremony to welcome the New Year. According to Sephardic custom, at Rosh Hashanah, certain foods—beyond the apples dipped in honey—are eaten to symbolize our prayers and hopes for a sweet new year.
Come join us on Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 10:00 am to learn how to add new meaning and flavors to your Rosh Hashanah dinner. At this event, foodie, caterer, and cooking teacher Susan Barocas will talk about this tradition, provide tastings of some Sephardic Rosh Hashanah treats, and hand out copies of the seder blessings and recipes. Reservations encouraged to make sure we have enough food. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Judy at 301-460-6928.
