Rosh Hashanah holiday is the Jewish New Year. Because the start of the Jewish New Year is determined according to the Jewish Hebrew calendar (which doesn’t correspond to the regular calendar), Rosh Hashanah occurs on different dates every year. Rosh Hashanah 2013 is on Thursday September 5th. The traditional Rosh Hashanah dinner is served on the sundown of the day before. This means that the time for serving Rosh Hashanah dinner 2013 is the evening of Wednesday September 4th.
Here’s the menu that I’m planning on serving for Rosh Hashanah dinner:
Rosh Hashanah Menu Starters:
Bell Peppers And Onions – this appetizer is made out of sweet bell pepper slices stewed with onions and tomato sauce – please see recipe for bell peppers and onions appetizer.
Eggplant Salad – baked eggplant is chopped in a food processor with onion, garlic and oil – please see eggplant appetizer salad recipe.
Sweet Potato Tzimmes – this tzimmes recipe is made out of sweet potatoes, carrots, prunes, cinnamon and honey – recipe coming soon, stay tuned!
Marinated Mushrooms – mushrooms marinated with olive oil, vinegar and spices – please see easy marinated mushrooms recipe.
Baby Spinach Salad With Candied Pecans And Dried Cranberries – it’s the king of green salads – really beautiful and tasty – please see salad recipe with candied pecans and cranberries.
Rosh Hashanah Menu Main Dish:
Nothing would be more traditional for Rosh Hashanah than gefilte fish! Some people serve the gefilte fish as an appetizer, but I will be serving it as a main dish. I think the gefilte fish is filling enough to be the main dish, especially when there are so many appetizers and desserts on my Rosh Hashanah menu 🙂
Rosh Hashanah Menu Desserts:
Apples slices with honey for dipping (the traditional Rosh Hashanah food, there is even a song that goes “apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah”)
Sweet Noodle Kugel -stay tuned for the recipe
Carrot cake – this cake is super-easy to make, with grated carrots, cinnamon and walnuts! Please see my easy carrot cake recipe.
I hope you enjoy my Rosh Hashanah menu and recipes, and have a wonderful New Year!
