One of the best known and most beloved traditions of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) is the eating of simanim (symbolic foods) at the evening meal. Each one is supposed to convey an aspect of blessing or fortune for the upcoming year.
This stunning glass plate is both decorative and practical in helping you prepare for your Rosh Hashanah experience! Along with a colorful pomegranate decorative motif, it features eight indentations to hold eight of the most common and popular simanim. The name of each one is written in English and Hebrew, and in the center is the Hebrew blessing Shana Tova (Happy New Year).
A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolize the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
