Mayor Bloomberg was getting his Rosh Hashanah shop on the other day along Avenue J in Brooklyn. Rosh Hashanah, aka the Jewish New Year and one of the holiest days of the Jewish calendar, starts on September 15. There are a lot of workshops and events at the Jewish Community Center for the holiday. And we know it's the wrong holiday, but check out this NYC menorah. We'll await the Bloomberg family Rosh Hashanah recipes at the NYC.gov site and keep you posted.
