Honey dishes make the perfect gift if your going away for the holiday, or even for newlyweds! Not only is a honey dish used from Rosh Hashanah until Succot when blessing the challah over Shabbat and the holidays, newlyweds use honey on their challah for their first year of marriage. Rather than putting salt on their challah, which resembles a sacrifice given during Temple times, honey is used to symbolize a sweet year of marriage. Honey dishes come in plenty of shapes and colors, and are all unique pieces of useable art that will be cherished for a lifetime.
Pomegranate Honey Dishes
What better way to represent Rosh Hashanah than with a pomegranate honey dish? Pomegranates symbolize the 613 mitzvot- commandments, and are round, representing a cycle- both of which are important aspects for Rosh Hashanah. We begin the new year, a cycle, and take on the commandments once again. These sweet fruits are also are one of the Seven Species, which are native to the land of Israel since Biblical times, so why not store your honey in one of Israel's most iconic fruits? Beautiful glass, ceramic, silver, and metal dishes either shaped like a pomegranate or adorned with the fruit, pomegranate dishes make a stunning centerpiece.
