Westport, CT (PRWEB) August 15, 2006
The first night of the Jewish New Year is right around the corner. Those recognizing the occasion are busily preparing for the celebration by buying new clothes for the family, inviting loved ones to dinner, getting out the best china and crystal and planning the holiday meal.
On Friday night, September 22, 2006, Jewish people will begin celebrating this important religious celebration. Rosh Hashana is the symbolic anniversary of the creation of the world. The words ‘Rosh Hashana’ translate to ‘Head of the Year.’ During this celebration, the Jewish tradition bestows a belief that everyone is created anew at this time of year. While it is a time for celebration, it is also a time for personal introspection and prayer.
With families living farther away from each other and people reconnecting with their own Jewish faith, many are turning to the Internet to help them learn more about Jewish holidays like Rosh Hashana and ways to celebrate.
While food is an important part of the Rosh Hashana celebration, so is wishing others well and sending gifts and cards to let friends and family know what has been happening in the past year.
“I remember Rosh Hashana as a wonderful time of quiet celebration as a child. My mother would prepare a traditional Rosh Hashana feast and we always had a blessing said over two loaves of challah. I would look at the delicious bread with wide eyed anticipation -- waiting for the moment when I could have a taste,” states Marni Rothstein, 40, from Asbury, New Jersey.
Rothstein, like many, is turning to the Internet to indulge in the delicious Jewish treats she has missed in recent years. Others go online looking for Jewish gifts to send to family, friends and colleagues to help them extend good wishes during this significant holiday.
“I never learned to make Challah like my mother did. That’s something I’ll always regret. However, I’m thrilled that I discovered The Challah Connection because they have everything I need to celebrate Rosh Hashana. Even delicious tasting and fresh Challah,” Rothstein added.
Challah Connections’ Jane Moritz is proud both of her role in keeping Jewish traditions flourishing and providing high quality food items and unique Jewish gifts.
Moritiz comments: “It gives me great pleasure whenever a customer takes the time to write me a note telling me how important our products were in the celebration of Jewish holidays like Rosh Hashana. I am truly blessed to share the wonderful Jewish culture and tradition with people from around the world.”
Another great feature of The Challah Connection is the ability to select Jewish gift items to send to family and friends you might not be seeing during Rosh Hashana. They offer wonderful gift baskets, including those that feature the favorite sweet treats like apples and honey, rugelach and of course, the challah to signify new life.
“I discovered Challah Connection last year when I purchased traditional products for my own family Rosh Hashana celebration. This year, I’m sending their wonderful products to family members that I won’t be seeing during this important holiday,” Rothstein concludes.
