Ray and Diane Wacks will lead this Model Seder. It will be a sweet and short way to usher in the New Year.

The Rosh Hashanah Seder dates back almost 2,000 years, and is part of our Sephardic tradition. This short Seder traditionally takes place before the holiday meal at Rosh Hashanah. At this Seder several fruits and vegetables are eaten. Each is a symbol and an omen for goodness and blessings in the coming year.

You will need the following foods and items for your Seder:

  • A set of candles and candle sticks
  • A cup of wine or grape juice for the Kiddish
  • A Challah or festive bread
  • Apples and Honey for dipping
  • Dates (pitted ones work best)
  • A head (Traditionally the head of a fish was used. You may wish to substitute a head of lettuce or cabbage.)
  • A pomegranate, cut into slices
  • Beets (a small can of sliced beets works well)
  • A bunch of grapes
