Chabad House hosts Rosh Hashanah farmers market

Press release from Chabad House of Asheville: 

On September 22, kids will gather at Chabad House, to experience Rosh Hashanah through an interactive hands-on culinary experience, at the organic Rosh Hashanah Farmers Market. “We wanted to do something different,” says Chana Susskind, director of Chabad Hebrew School of the Arts. As participants go from booth to booth, they’ll explore the holiday’s culinary themes with unique recipes—round artisan challah, apple mocktails, carrot cake pops, and a holiday fruit salad. “Jewish holidays are rich with symbolism. This experience will bring participants on a sensory journey. It’s an organic learning process that brings the local goodness of Rosh Hashanah to life,” Susskind says. At each booth, kids will use personalized tote bags to collect marketplace finds—unique recipe cards that they’ll turn into a special holiday keepsake.
