Jewish tradition teaches that Rosh HaShanah (Jewish New Year) is a time to dip apples in honey in celebration and expectation of a sweet year to come. This rose-shaped tart also hearkens back to Song of Solomon 8:5, “Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I awakened you under the apple tree. There your mother brought you forth.” Solomon is depicting the love God harbors for His nation, here connected with the apple tree, and eating an apple on Rosh HaShanah (or in this case an apple tart) is a reminder of the sweetness of that age-old love.
