Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year – begins on Friday, September 18th. The holiday is full of traditions that include apologizing to loved ones and purifying the air to start the new year fresh and eating apples dipped in honey to make sure you have a sweet year ahead.
The best tradition is of course the sumptuous meals that the whole family should enjoy. This year, smaller festivities may be held in place of the multi-generational gatherings that normally take place.
Tradition still calls for brisket and matzo ball soup and everything that goes with it. For this reason, it makes sense to order a Rosh Hashanah meal this year. Here are the best places to bring a Rosh Hashanah meal to your door or wait for you to pick it up. Then all you have to do is set the table, warm up some items and enjoy.
