ROSH HASHANAH GIFTS FOR 2023
With a new year comes new opportunities and new chances to make memories around the family table once again. The food is great and for at least this once, we have an opportunity to celebrate a holiday that doesn’t shine light on a group of people that tried to kill us! It’s a win for all of us.
Whether you’re attending a dinner filled with familiar faces or heading somewhere brand new, it is, of course, customary to bring something for the host. If you’d like to bring something to your Rosh Hashanah celebration, or use some cute items to host your own celebration, take a look at the beautiful options we’ve gathered below:
Pomegranates hold a special place in the hearts and shopping carts of many Jewish people around this time of year. Why? It is said that the pomegranate has 613 seeds, representing the 613 mitzvot (Not that we counted)! It is also a symbol of righteousness, knowledge and wisdom and has a sweet kick that makes it a perfect addition to the holiday menu. With that, this gorgeous plate, available here at Bloomingdales for $145, is the perfect gift to bring to anyone’s holiday dinner table.
