For those who are unaware or unfamiliar, today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year! ✡️ This year is 5780 in the Hebrew calendar. 🧓
Tradition on Rosh Hashanah is to eat round foods, like 🍎 or 🥚, which symbolize life, and sweet foods, like those dipped in 🍯, which symbolize the hope for a sweet year!
Things you can say to wish people a happy new year: Shanah Tovah (lit. "A good year"), "chag sameach" ("happy holiday"), or just "happy new year"!
A sweet year and a long life, friends!
