The specifics of how Jewish people celebrate Rosh Hashanah vary depending on background, upbringing, and level of observance, but Rosh Hashanah customs include reciting blessings, prayer and self-reflection, and enjoying a meal with loved ones. Many Rosh Hashanah traditions revolve around symbols intended to usher in a fruitful new year, so when it comes to ideas for Rosh Hashanah gifts, these are a great place to start your search.
We've covered apples and pomegranates, but dates are another traditional fruit enjoyed on Rosh Hashanah. These Jooliettes, dark chocolate-covered diced date bites, have blood orange flavoring for even more fruit action. They're organic, vegan, and kosher. Available on Thrive Market.
