Set the table for a sweet new year

Nothing says "Yiddishkeit" like the wow when we sit down for a fabulous festive meal.

Rosh Hashanah is a signature occasion for family and friends to come together with unbridled joy and optimism. It is a tradition that never gets old.

Laying a beautiful table lets us set the scene for the celebration of the New Year. Nothing says “Yiddishkeit” like the wow when we sit down for a fabulous festive meal.

Our modern Jewish home becomes the spotlight, drawing on heirloom. But there is always room for something new to lift our spirits even higher.

The Sydney Jewish Museum shop is your number one source for that special something whether you are the host or looking for a gift (and great new greeting cards).

Make this Rosh Hashanah the sweetest with honey from Urban Bee Hive. Their story tells us how important and amazing bees are, with honey collected from Sydney rooftops, backyards and community gardens.

Display your apple on a blue and white glass plate and drizzle generously with our honey dippers from our wide range of honey pots.

Never underestimate the pleasure young children get from their first taste of apple and honey. It’s an experience we relive every Rosh Hashanah and associate with the uplifting New Year spirit.

Lost for words? You might not know how to say “Happy New Year” in 17 languages, but this year why not say “Shana Tova” with our white ceramic honey pots?

We love pomegranates for their symbolism of righteousness, knowledge and wisdom. Naturally, we have pomegranate-inspired objects like honeypots and challah covers. In the Jewish tradition, it is said that pomegranates have 613 seeds, the abundance representing fertility. Did you also know each pomegranate seed represents one of the 613 mitzvot?

Finally, have some of our children’s books stashed ready for the young at heart. Stories are a great way to engage and teach the messages of Rosh Hashanah.
