Symbolic Meanings of Rosh Hashanah Foods image
According to the explanation given by Lois Tverberg Rosh Hashanah, literally translated means head of the year. In other words it is regarded as the Jewish New Year and a period of ten days of repentance. This event is commenced with an evening meal. Much of the food offered to the guests at this mealtime has symbolic value for those of the Jewish faith, most of which relates to blessings and wishes that people desire for the coming year.
