About the High Holy Days

Rosh Hashannah is the Jewish new year and is the anniversary of the day that man was created during the creation of the world. On this day, all mankind is judged and the success of their coming year is decided.

Yom Kippur is a day in which all Jews are given the opportunity to repent for their past misdeeds and start off on a new year.

Sukkot/Sukkos celebrates the great care which G-d provided for the Jews after the exodus from Egypt on their journeys to the holy land of Israel.

About Challah

Challah is a special braided bread eaten by most Jews on the Sabbath and holidays. According to Jewish tradition, each Sabbath and holiday meal begins with a blessing over two loaves of bread. This "lechem mishneh" (double loaf) represents the double serving of manna that fell from the heavens in honor of Sabbath and holidays when the Israelites traveled through the desert after the Exodus from Egypt. The manna is a symbol of prosperity and contentment. Traditionally, each challah is constructed from six braids (12 total for the two challahs). These represent the twelve loaves of show-bread arranged weekly in the Holy Temple. This also is a sign of wealth and prosperity.

On Rosh Hashanah it is customary to use a round challah instead of the braided challah. On the New Year we celebrate the coronation of G-d as the King of the world. The round challah looks like a crown and is symbolic of G-d's kingship. The round challah is also symbolic of the year that goes round and round, always coming back to the same seasons.
