One of the symbols or simanim that one is supposed to eat on Rosh Hashana is the leek. I took some photos of leeks today, hoping to be inspired by one to paint a watercolor. We shall see. I’m thinking about the middle one, the single leek, as a subject.
Leeks in Aramaic are karsi; in Hebrew, this is similar to karat, to cut down or destroy.
See more of my Rosh Hashana posts, including my list of the simanim. Still planning to redo the list in a prettier format.
If you are looking for recipes, here is my chicken soup recipe, which will happily take a leek. Feel free to post a link to a leek recipe in the comments.
