Found in cupboards everywhere, honey, is a staple ingredient for many people and has a special significance for the approaching Jewish New Year- Rosh Hashonah.
Honey has strong Jewish associations, like the land of Israel flowing “with milk and honey,” as quoted in the Torah. Traditionally, Jewish people dip apples into honey on Rosh Hashonah, hoping and praying for a sweet, new year to come.
The newly opened Chabad center for Jewish life in West Kendall, will host services for Rosh Hashonah in late September.
The services, which run from Wednesday evening, September 24th through September 26th, will help Jewish residents of West Kendall & The Falls celebrate the Jewish new year and start the coming 12 months anew.
It is open to members of the Jewish faith who are not members of the Synagogue, and there is no admission charge.
Delicious, traditional meals will be followed after each Service.
