In 2022, the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, begins on Sunday, September 25th, and culminates on the evening of Tuesday, September 27th. It commemorates the creation of the world.
One of the Rosh Hashanah traditions is to eat apples dipped in honey, to evoke a sweet new year.
How about chocolate?
Artisan chocolatier Joan Coukos of Chocolat Moderne, a Nibble favorite, has created a Sweet Celebrations collection to capture the flavors and traditions of the Jewish New Year. And yes, there is chocolate with apples and honey.
If you want an extra-special way to celebrate Rosh Hashanah—or want to send a gift—we recommend a box of Sweet Celebrations.
The handmade chocolates include two each of three dark chocolate and three milk chocolate bonbons:
Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates in Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement.
Four days after Yom Kippur, on October 2nd, the festival of Sukkot (the feast of the Tabernacles) begins. It remembers the years that the people of Israel spent sheltered in tents while crossing the desert from Egypt to the Promised Land.
So there’s plenty of time to celebrate and enjoy fine chocolates.
