PREPARE FOR THE HIGH HOLY DAYS
Why a Round Challah?
It is thought that the round challahs, because they have no end, symbolize our wish for a year in which life and blessings continue without end. It is also thought that the round shape can reflect the ongoing cycle of years and seasons. Wait, it also resembles a crown which could mean God’s sovereignty, a common theme throughout the High Holy Days.
Tashlich (meaning “to cast”) is a ritual that usually takes place on Rosh Hashanah afternoon and involves tossing small pieces of bread into a body of water to symbolize casting away our wrongdoings of the past year.
