One of the most well-known traditions on Rosh Hashanah and on Shabbats during the Jewish month of Tishrei is the dipping of apples in honey and the recitation of a short prayer for a "sweet New Year." Because of this tradition that dates back hundreds of years, honey dishes have become Judaica items that are common and can be found in most Jewish homes.
Are you looking for a gift to give a loved one in honor of the New Year or for a unique way to decorate your holiday table? Consider a honey dish made from sterling silver or red stained glass that is shaped like a large apple and decorated with apples, Jerusalem and the phrase "Shana Tova" or "A good year" painted or engraved into its side. As an alternative, choose a honey dish made from porcelain that is shaped like an apple and has floral patterns on its exterior.
Honey Dishes can also take the form of small bowls. These bowls are often made from sterling silver and are decorated with Jewish themes. We at World of Judaica invite you to browse our selection of honey dish bowls that have the seven species, apples, Jerusalem and different phrases relating to the Jewish New Year engraved on the sides.
