The simanim, or symbolic foods, are among the most iconic symbols of Rosh Hashanah. We eat these foods to incorporate and remember the seriousness of the day even during the celebratory mealtimes. Although it is a custom and not a mitzvah to eat these simanim, they have become common in many Jewish homes.
Each food is given separate attention and a brief blessing. Throughout the years, these symbolic foods have grown and evolved, so the exact foods and blessings will vary depending on each family’s tradition. Many of these simanim can be interpreted according to a person’s own experience. Rosh Hashanah is an introspective holiday, after all.
