It’s a Jewish tradition to dip apples in honey or eat honey cake on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, to represent the beginning of a sweet year. This week is not only the beginning of the Jewish new year, but also just the second full week of school. School may be more hectic than sweet for we seniors right now, but hopefully everyone will at least have a sweet day off! Celebrate with some cake.
