Simanim for Rosh Hashana
This is a repeat of an older post, as I concentrate on preparing for the holiday and preparing the film website for the upcoming Rutgers Jewish Film Festival in late October to early November.
To those celebrating Rosh Hashana, do you do the Rosh Hashana simanim? Many Ashkenazim (Jews from Central and Eastern Europe) just dip an apple in honey as a symbol. Others, like our family, have adopted parts of the Sephardi (Spanish Jewish) custom of these simanim. See this older post for more simanim details and explanations.
I still do not have a new fruit for the second night. This may be a last minute purchase this year. Maybe I will send a family member to H-Mart, the local Asian market, to see what they will find.
