Jews will officially celebrate Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year, this Wednesday, September 20 at sundown. During this special time of year, it is customary to dip apples in honey at mealtime and recite the prayer, “May it be thy will that we be blessed with a good, sweet year.” In the photo above, Rabbi Eckstein celebrates the holiday by following this tradition with new French immigrants who just arrived in the Holy Land!
