Moriah Students Partake in Sephardic Simanim Seder

Last week, Moriah students had the opportunity to partake in a Sephardic Simanim Seder for Rosh Hashanah. Different families enjoy a variety of customs when it comes to which foods are eaten on the chag and what they symbolize. The children learned that Jewish people have lived all over the globe, throughout the millennia, and 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 they all made the brachot and tasted the different foods—Sephardi style—apples dipped in honey and sugar, dates, pomegranate, swiss chard, squash, black-eyed peas, leeks and a candy fish head!
