dc.description.abstractFor spiritual Jews, the periods prior to, during, and after Rosh HaShanah are intense , with individuals asking for forgiveness and praying for a happy and healthy New Year. For gastronomic Jews, the highlight of Rosh HaShanah is its fine foods and superb meals. For Jews combining both traits, the traditional holiday foods, served in plentiful portions, are symbolic omens for the coming year (Horayos 12b ) and serve to strengthen the spiritual mindset of the observant Jew. This article discusses some Talmudic thoughts, coupled with medical information , on wine, apples, and honey - food items consumed on Rosh HaShanah.en_US
