Sunset on September 25 marks the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, a celebration of the Jewish New Year that ends at sunset on September 27. It’s followed by Yom Kippur on October 4 and 5. Together, they make the High Holidays. Rosh Hashanah is celebrated with gatherings of friends and family centered around symbolic foods including apples, pomegranates, dried fruits, and honey. It’s also full of some of the best dishes found on Jewish holidays year-round, such as challah, braised brisket, and matzo ball soup. Whether searching for a holiday feast or picking up items to build a spread, here are the Dallas spots offering special Rosh Hashanah meals and treats this year.
