Like everything this year, High Holidays with Or Emet will look a bit different. While services will be online, we are working hard to make them into a meaningful and uplifting opportunity to reflect on our lives and connect with each other. We know that food is part of what makes the High Holidays meaningful and fun. To help bring the taste of the season into your home, Or Emet Ritual Leader Eva Cohen has put together some suggestions for preparing or buying special holiday foods.
- Slice up apples and dip them in honey for a sweet new year.
- Bake a round challah or a honey cake.
- If you’d like to order from the bakery where Or Emet often gets Rosh Hashanah oneg treats, check out Breadsmith’s High Holidays selections, listed under Seasonal Specials and available for curbside pickup at St. Paul, Edina, and Minnetonka locations.
- If you’re feeling ambitious, cook a whole Rosh Hashanah dinner featuring Jewish recipes from around the globe.
- For Yom Kippur break-the-fast (whether or not you fast, get in on the fun), assemble a spread of bagels, toppings, and sides for yourself—or cook up an even more elaborate menu.
- There are lots of good local options for ordering bagels, et cetera. Among them, Common Roots Café in Minneapolis has house-made bagels, cream cheese, and other great menu items available for curbside pickup and contactless delivery.
Bete’avon (bon appetit)!
