Moriah Students Enjoy a Sephardic Simanim Seder

This past week Moriah had the opportunity to partake in a Sephardic Simanim Seder for Rosh Hashanah. Teachers explained that different families may enjoy a variety of customs when it comes to which foods are eaten and what they symbolize. The children learned that Jewish people have lived all over the globe, throughout the millennia. Depending on the country/community that one’s family originated from, that could determine which symbolic foods are eaten on Rosh Hashanah night. There was so much excitement as everyone made the brachot and tasted the different foods—Sephardi style—apples dipped in honey and sugar, dates, pomegranate, swiss chard, squash, black-eyed peas, leek and a candy fish head!
