A gift of Rosh Hashanah flowers is a time-honored way to celebrate the Jewish New Year. This annual festival marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year and is celebrated on the first or second day of September. Rosh Hashanah is followed by Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement and one of the two Jewish High Holy Days. Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on and is a time of self-examination and repentance for any wrongs the person might have done during past year.
Observance of Rosh Hashanah begins with a ceremony known as “Tashlich,” which literally means “casting off.” Pieces of bread, representing the person’s sins committed during the previous year are tossed into a body of water. Several other foods play an important part of Rosh Hashanah. For example, apple slices are dipped in honey represent hope for the coming New Year and Challah bread symbolizes life’s continuity.
