The Jewish High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are during the last two weeks of September this year.
Rosh Hashanah is traditionally celebrated by dipping apple slices into honey as a symbol of a sweet new year to come. If you are allergic to honey, or have pollen allergies, you can substitute agave nectar or even a simple sugar syrup for honey. If you are allergic to apples, try another fruit that is safe for you, or even a sweet vegetable such as a carrot.
Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is a day of fasting. However, observers often eat a special meal before beginning their fast, and a celebratory breakfast the next morning. Check out our collection of allergy-friendly recipes for these meals and other traditional foods for Jewish holidays.
