Leek Study

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.

יהי רצון מלפנך, ה’ אלקינו ואלקי אבותינו, שיכרתו שונאינו
May it be Your will, Hashem, our God and the God of our forefathers, that our enemies be decimated

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.
