Jewish New Year Gifts for the College Crowd

New college Freshmen can feel lonely on Rosh Hashana. For many it’s their first Jewish holiday spent away from home. Sending a gift for them to share with roommates, dorm residents and friends will kick off their New Year with joy. Everyone loves getting that little “you’ve got a package” slip in their college mailbox. Challah Connection’s Tower of Tradition gives them an exciting bunch of delicious little packages to unwrap and enjoy. They’ve love the traditional fresh apples and honey, rugelach, and amazing chocolate caramel apples. It’s a great way to share their Jewish traditions with college buddies. Or choose to send them a basket of Rosh Hashana essentials: challah, apples and honey, babka and rugelah (yes, we consider rugelah “essential”!). We have many other kosher gift baskets to choose from, too – just visit the website.

The Perfect Rosh Hashana Apple Cake

Entertaining for Rosh Hashana

Rosh Hashana is one of my favorite holidays. It gives us a perfect excuse to invite friends, neighbors, and fellow congregants over for a celebratory meal. But sometimes the deadline of attending services can make entertaining with a full meal feel rushed. Wish you could still celebrate with friends, but make it easier and more manageable? Here’s an idea: open your home for a quick, sweet nosh of dessert and coffee. That way you can invite as many visitors as you feel like celebrating the Jewish New Year with.

If you’re looking for the easiest way to entertain, you can order a Rosh Hashana Apple Cake and all you have to do is find the right serving plate!

A Simple, Delicious Apple Cake Recipe

Want to make your own? Here’s my favorite recipe for the perfect Rosh Hashana Apple Cake. You can print this apple cake recipe and keep it on hand, because it’s also a great ending for your Yom Kippur meal!

The Jewish New Year is also a great time to send a kosher gift basket to someone special. They’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness! Some people you might not have thought of who’d love this gift: your temple youth group coordinator, Sisterhood president, or even the temple caretaker. Start the year off right by doing a mitzvah and recognizing their hard work and volunteer time.
