Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, usually falls in September. It marks the beginning of the High Holy Days of the Jewish Year. It is traditional to eat apple slices dipped in honey at Rosh Hashanah to guarantee a sweet new year. It is also traditional to bake Challah bread in round loaves symbolizing the circular nature of the seasons.
Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, falls 10 days after Rosh Hashanah.
The huts are made with a variety of materials. Usually, the roof is thatched in such a way that you can see the stars. The walls and ceilings are hung with fruit and other decorations.
