Rosh Hashana is fast approaching which means pomegranate season is around the corner! Luckily for us in Israel, this country is very holiday-oriented and symbolic. Whether you shop for your pomegranates in newly added bins at your local makolet, or from the teenagers yelling “Rimonim! Rimonim!” in the Shuk, you’re bound to end up with some of the land’s finest. Pomegranates play a big role in this auspicious time. You really feel the difference in this delicious Jewish country. Maybe you casually hear the shofar being blown through a Shul window as you pass by in the morning, or your child is coming home from Gan with familiar songs and projects. Either way, you can feel a serious tone take over. Rosh Hashana is coming and we want to increase our good deeds like the seeds of a pomegranate. What better way to represent this idea than on your Rosh Hashana table? Here are some delicious and easy ways to get 613 seeds into your Rosh Hashana feast.
