In line with a “Sweeten All the Judgments” theme for all my Rosh Hashanah cooking I start the meal with a slightly honeyed version of standard dips for challah. Using the traditional round challah with raisins, “what goes around comes around…” we turn the feast into a prayer form asking, begging Hashem with every bite to please make it a sweet year for the whole world.
