September 20, 2017 is a special day. It’s my 30th wedding anniversary — and I’m loving the milestone, the joy of looking back, the comfort of a happy marriage and the prospect of a golden future.
It’s also erev Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of the Jewish new year celebration. You may have already prepared your holiday menu and even made your dishes in advance. If you’re still looking for inspiration, here are some Rosh Hashanah celebrations menu suggestions.
Shanah tovah — good year to everyone. May you be healthy and happy.

What’s a Jewish holiday without chicken soup?
Simple Salad or Coleslaw

Brisket is traditional for Rosh Hashanah Celebrations.

or Potato Kugel
We grew up with wonderful Potato Kugel at shabbat dinners and Rosh Hashanah celebrations.
Assorted Roasted Vegetables:

Preheat your oven to 420F. Brush cut veggies with a little olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and roast, turning occasionally, removing veggies as they’re done. Caramelize by leaving veggies in hot oven after closing the heat. Careful to avoid burning.

By all means serve fresh fruit, but don’t forget how delicious fruit is when cooked.
- Now that you’ve feasted, it’s time to step up the activity game. I’m recommending a Fitbit to keep you aware of your activity level. Aim for the recommended 10,000 steps a day, a reasonable challenge.
- Dance along to this Dip Your Apple – Fountainheads Rosh Hashanah song.
- Speed it up break dancing to this Rosh Hashanah Rock Anthem.
- Add a little French flair to your repertoire as you boogie to Call Me Maybe-Chana Tova.
