We're here to help you check that off your Rosh Hashanah list with the finest honey dishes produced in Israel, created by the Holy Land's greatest artists.

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
Pomegranates are in season around Rosh Hashanah, in fact, many eat them during the holiday either for dessert or as a part of the customary Rosh Hashanah Seder. Pomegranates have inspired Rosh Hashanah tableware, including honey dishes. Choose between honey dishes that are shaped like pomegranates with their lids representing the crown of the fruit or honey dishes in the shape of this majestic fruit. There are also honey dishes that have a bit more of a subtle pomegranate design, like this glass dish with a pomegranate bead and this colorful plate and bowl set with a stunning pomegranate pattern.
