Heads, Honey, Locusts, and Leeks: The Fascinating Foods of Rosh Hashanah and Jewish History

Why do some Jews eat leeks, dates, and even a sheep’s head on Rosh Hashanah? How did honey become the supreme symbol of the Jewish New Year? Why are some locusts kosher, and will Rabbi Soloveichik actually eat one live on camera?

This intriguing and (hopefully) appetizing conversation will help prepare us for the High Holidays and allow us to understand why Judaism believes that you are what you eat.
