If you’re in the market for a shofar, the most significant cost factor is length, which is typically measured around the outer curve (not end to end). Ram’s horns range from 10 inches for a compact horn to 24 inches for an extra large shofar, with several more sizes in between. Typical online prices for short shofars can run as low as $30. For a medium length horn, expect to pay $40-$90 and for a large shofar $60-$120. An extra large ram’s horn shofar will set you back $130 or more.

Many Jews, especially families of Sephardic and Mizrahi origin have a special ceremony at home comprised of foods with symbolic meaning.

Spring is the second most popular, followed by fall and winter. Only about thirteen percent of weddings are held in the winter, even with Valentine’s Day! The reason for this is simple. As wedding costs continue to increase, more and more couples are planning casual, outdoor affairs. And you simply can’t do that in the dead of winter. We must also consider that teachers and other trained professionals have vacation time in the summer.
Rosh Hashanah is more than about food, but the symbolism of the High Holy Day. While called the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah is actually a day of remembrance and judgment. Jewish people around the world celebrate this day with great food and hope for the coming year.
