FOOD - FISH
© Miriam Chaiken
Fish, because they are numerous, are used as symbols
of fertility and prosperity and because their eyes are
always open, and they see everything, they stand for
knowledge. On Rosh Hashanah, the head of the fish is
placed before the head of the family. And he or she
says, on behalf of all those at the table: "May it be
your will that we be like the head (leaders) and not
like the tail (followers)."
