23 Gluten-Free Recipes for Rosh Hashanah

Holidays can evoke such a sense of warmth and happiness just by their sounds, smells and tastes. For me, the smell of chicken soup and brisket reminds me of my grandmother’s house and there is nothing quite like it.

But for those who have dietary restrictions or have chosen particular eating styles and cannot indulge in traditional holiday foods, this time of year can be anxiety-ridden or even feel sad.

Jewish food can be lots of things including healthy, vegetarian and even gluten-free. And this round-up of traditional food and sweet treats is for our gluten-free friends. Hope this helps make your New Year a little sweeter.
