It is traditional to eat apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah. The apples symbolize the constant cycle of life and the honey symbolizes the sweetness that we hope will characterize the year to come.
The following blessing, printed on a beautiful keepsake card, is enclosed with each jar of honey you send:
The apple is dipped in honey, the blessing for eating tree fruits is recited, the apple is tasted, and then the apples and honey prayer is recited.
Barukh atah Adonai, Elohaynu, melekh ha-olam
Blessed are you, Lord our God, king of the universe
borei p’riy ha-eitz. (Amen)
who creates the fruit of the tree. (Amen)
Take a bite from the apple dipped in honey, then continue with the following:
y’hi ratzon mil’fanekha Adonai eloheinu vei’lohei avoteinu
May it be Your will, Lord our God and God of our forefathers
sh’t’chadeish aleinu shanah tovah um’tukah.
that you renew for us a good and sweet year.
