The Chabad of Pasadena is inviting the community to join them on October 2 for a meal commemorating Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah — also known as Jewish New Year or the Feast of Trumpets — is an annual two-day celebration that, according to Jewish theology, marks the creation of Adam and Eve.

Customs associated with the holiday include sounding a hollowed out ram’s horn, a customary dinner involving symbolic foods.

Traditional iconic foods include apples dipped in honey to symbolize having a sweet new year, fish to symbolize prayer and other foods mentioned in the Talmud, such as dates, black-eyed peas, leek, spinach, pomegranates, challah bread and gourd.

The dinner will take place at the Chabad of Pasadena located at 1090 East Walnut Street. Tickets will cost $20-$35 and the event will start after a prayer service which begins at 6:20 p.m.
