Have you checked the calendar? All of the Jewish holidays are very early this year! Rosh Hashanah begings at sundown on September 4th which is the Wednesday after Labor Day. So it will be a week of beach balls and Matzoh Balls.
Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and the beginning of the High Holy Days. The holiday has delicious culinary traditions! It’s a time to reflect on the past year, reunite with family and friends to celebrate the happy year to come. The traditional symbolic foods are a big round Challah bread to represent the continuing cycle of life and apples dipped in honey to start off the new year on a sweet note. The rest of the meal can be quite challenging and time consuming to cook. Fortunately, we have some great places that can do the cooking for you.
Here are our favorite Kosher and Kosher-style Rosh Hashanah caterers that offer everything for your holiday meals. Call it a feast-to-go or a holiday heat and eat meal. Be aware of the early deadline dates to place your orders.
