Rosh Hashanah starts tomorrow (wednesday) at sunset. This year, with a Wednesday start, we have the much maligned “three day Chag” that means the two days of RH go right into shabbat and we never leave sacred space, for three days. This is both wonderful and tricky. Although you can cook on Chag, you can only cook for shabbat if you follow specific rules. We have an electric oven, so all the bread baking has to be done ahead of time.
Challah for Rosh Hashanah is typically a sweet challah, filled with raisins or fruit and glazed with honey. I’m not a fan of raisins, so I use craisins instead, and chocolate chips!!
