Rosh HaShanah “Simanim” (Significant Omens)

It’s the month of Elul and we’re greating ready for Rosh HaShana at Villa Rimona.

We’ve got a bumper crop of Dates and Pomegranates this year and the Date clusters are hanging heavily on the tree and need to be tied up, and the pomegranates need to be protected from their enemies with paper bags.

We’ll be using both the Dates and Pomegranates for our Rosh HaShanah “simanim” (significant omens) platter. It’s customary to recite verses that “sound” like the foods which either foreshadow success for the Jewish people or the downfall of our enemies in the coming year.

Watch this 1 min video to see how we do it at Villa Rimona.
