The special Rosh Hashanah prayer before eating a date (tamar in Hebrew) includes the phrase “yitamuhataim”–may the wicked cease.
- 1 lb medjool dates, pitted
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- Finely shredded coconut, for rolling
Pulse dates and almonds in a food processor until they form a malleable paste. Form 1-inch balls from the date mixture and roll in shredded coconut.
