Rosh Hashanah decor and menu ideas for Good Day New York with Rosanna Scotto.
Rosh Hashanah is the joyous celebration of the Jewish New Year. It's a time to gather with loved ones around a special meal. Sweet foods are a symbolic way to usher in a sweet year ahead, with apples dipped in honey being the most iconic food item of the holiday.
