Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are times of celebration and reflection, bringing families, friends, and communities together. For many, the 2020 High Holy Day gatherings will be different—smaller, outside, perhaps virtual—but will still feature traditional favorites and many symbolic foods like Challah, apples, and honey, that celebrate hope in the new year.

We dug into our archives for three High Holy Day recipes from Market Hall Foods:
