Wishes for New Year Light, Hope & Sweetness! 9/16

Wishing you Every Sweetness for the new year
Happiness, Health, Hope & Light for new beginnings

Rosh Hashanah has specific foods that are eaten. 

Three of these are apples, honey and carrots.

The meal begins by dipping the apple in the honey 

and asking G‑d to bless us with a sweet, good year
We also cook with honey, and traditionally eat honey cake.
Carrots are also eaten for their sweetness. 
The Yiddish word for carrot, meren, means “to increase
We want all good things to increase during the year
The Hebrew word for this vegetable, gezer
is from the same root as “judgments,” gezeirot
we want all our judgments to be positive, good and sweet
