MEALS & MEMORIES


By RABBI DR RAYMOND APPLE

Q. On a spiritual day like Rosh HaShanah why do people focus on food?

A. Some foods are symbolic such as apple and honey, which represent the hope of a sweet year. Many people have a whole array of "simanim", symbolic foods.  Apart from this, Nehemiah said, "Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet and send portions to those who have nothing, for this day is holy to the Lord" (Neh. 8:10)
