7 Vegan Rosh Hashanah Recipes to Celebrate the Jewish New Year

Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year, is a holiday to celebrate the happiness and prosperity to come with new beginnings. This year, the celebration will begin at sundown on September 9 and conclude at sundown on September 11. The traditional food served during Rosh Hashanah is bright, sweet, and uplifting, but unfortunately, not completely vegan. However, some may feel hesitant to swap out the animal-based items, as they all hold spiritual significance. We’ve compiled a list of vegan Rosh Hashanah foods so you can honor your heritage and your ethics. Shana tovahu’metukah! (A good sweet new year, in Hebrew).

7 Vegan Rosh Hashanah Recipes


1. Challah

Challah is a must on Rosh Hashanah; however, the traditional recipe is made with eggs and honey. The Challah Hub is a vegan challah delivery service in Los Angeles, and they have perfected the plant-based version of this Jewish staple. Create a simple braided round (as is customary during this holiday) or get inspired by these two outgoing bakers and create a challah sculpture!

2. Apples & Vegan Honey
