Overview of festivals and celebrations in Israel
Many colorful festivals and festive events take place in Israel year after year. One of the most important festivities in the country is the Jewish New Year also called “Rosh Hashanah”. It is celebrated for two days; on the new moon of the first and second days of the Jewish autumn month “Tishrei”. During this holiday, it is common for the whole family to unite at the table with traditional Israeli dishes. Each dish symbolizes one wish: fruits of pomegranate tree for fertile land, fish heads for superiority in everything, round bread “halal” for health, apples and honey for happiness. On Rosh Hashanah, the Jews are invited to go to the synagogue. During the festive service, the “shofar” is blown calling for repentance and appearance before the Court of God.
