Wishing You Shana Tova on Rosh Hashanah

Persimmons, now ready for harvest on local trees, are among the sweet foods – including apples dipped in honey – traditionally served to welcome a sweet new year on Rosh Hashana.


The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashana, which began on Sunday evening and ends on Tuesday, joyously welcomes the Jewish new year, bringing hope and the promise of new beginnings to all.

Shana Tova to all who are celebrating today!

(We’ll be back tomorrow with more local news, but in the meantime, if you’d like a great way to use those persimmons you just harvested, see our 2021 recipe for Persimmon, Cucumber, and Fig Salad from Buzz food writer Deborah Brooks).
