Photo Tour: Rosh Hashana at the Shuk

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

The Jerusalem shuk has to be one of the most interesting and colorful places in Israel. Yet, at no time is it more so than before Rosh Hashana...

We all want to be a head and not a tail, and the fish mongers are ready to help you out...

A new fruit is a new blessing for the 2nd day, the exotic fruit vendor is ready...

Flower??? No, Dragon Fruit!

Lizard in a ball? No, it's a Sugar/Custard Apple...

and a full selection of things I've never seen before. We've got your pineapple, your dragon fruit, your star fruit, your sugar apple, your passion fruit, your ugly bumpy yellow thing, your weird red round thing, and a few others as well...

Our enemies should be eliminated, says the Leek (rhymes in Hebrew)! Huge leeks come out in spring, but a special 2nd small crop is put in for Rosh Hashana...

Lots of honey for a sweet new year!

Our merits should be many, like the many seeds of a pomegranate...

Unlike Serandez, who's been experimenting with frightening stinky fruits and fruits that will burn out the inside of your mouth if eaten at the wrong time, all of these looked interesting and worth a try. My daughter insisted on a dragon fruit, and this little flower awaits our Rosh Hashana (hopefully it will stay good until then?)

May everyone's year be a good and sweet one, and filled with interesting fruits. Shana Tova!

OT! Did you see what's going on tin the US- Tov, she'batem b'aliyah.

And so the Navi'im are proven right, the Torah is truth and it's ways are perfect.

Wow, I wonder in those in the US are actually paying attention. The bottom is falling out...

We love the dragon fruit and usually start serving them after R"H every Shabbat.
