What is your new fruit for Rosh Hashanah? It's traditional to eat a "new" fruit on the second night of Rosh Hashanah... to recite the Shehecheyanu blessing and to celebrate the newness of the Jewish year.
Many choose to eat a pomegranate, either because of the 613 seeds representing the mitzvot in the Torah, or because it's easy to find in a supermarket and everyone enjoys its sweet flavor.
Some people may be a bit more adventurous with their new fruit, tasting a dragon fruit, lychee, or kumquat.
Others may try something more exotic, like rambutan, tamarind, or jackfruit. Some kosher supermarkets devote an area to unique fruits for Rosh Hashanah. You might get a rare find such as kiwano, cherimoya, mangosteen, or loquat.
Some people enjoy the adventure of slicing into one of these fruits and tasting it for the first time. Others prefer to eat the traditional pomegranate. Everyone could enjoy the sights of exotic fruits, with their unique colors and textures. This Sukkah Banner brings those fruits into your sukkah with all the wonderful colors and shapes, so you could continue to enjoy the newness of the fruits during Sukkot, a few weeks after Rosh Hashanah.
