Rosh Hashanah in the summer

Rosh Hashanah in the summer

The days are still long. The sun is still bright. Yet Rosh Hashanah is rapidly approaching. With its early arrival, it makes it hard to want to turn on the oven and heat the house. Labor Day is just days before Rosh Hashanah. It’s still grilling season.

As a result of the early holiday, it allows for a change of foods and flavors. Embrace that Rosh Hashanah is early because you just might find that new favorite dish.

Mary Fabrikant, owner of Le Vie Catering, recommends utilizing the summer produce that is still in season.

“We have so much more to play with. We are still going to have fresh corn and fresh tomatoes. Instead of roasted vegetables, have fresh, maybe steamed or grilled vegetables. It is summer, still.”

Samuelson grew up in South Africa. He was a very active boy and teenager, always playing sports. In 1970, at the age of 20, he made aliy...
