The Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) is celebrated just in time for your Fall honey harvest this year (September 5th and 6th).
Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a hollowed-out ram’s horn) and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to evoke a “sweet new year.”
The Maine Beekeepers would like to wish everyone a sweet year with lots of honey.
