On the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah, after the holiday prayer service, we say
kiddush over wine and eat a festive meal. Special Rosh Hashanah food customs
have developed over the centuries. We say the blessing over the bread and dip a
round challah into honey. Next, we dip a piece of apple into honey and ask for a
good and sweet year.
A sterling silver round tray was created. The ring shape is reminiscent of the loops
of a honeycomb. A silver pillar supports a saucière. The saucière is able to tilt and
turn on its axle allowing the honey to be distributed. With a half turn, the pillar
and saucière are removed, allowing the tray to be passed around.
