6. Gefilte Fish
Ashkenazi Jews also eat fish for the New Year. In place of a fish head, there is a dish of gefilte fish, which is a loaf made of ground carp, whitefish or pike. The symbolism is the same—by eating fish, the wish is that blessings and prosperity will multiply like the fish in the sea.
7. Head of Lamb
The head of a lamb, boiled and spiced, serves as a reminder that the Jewish people need to lead other nations through their righteousness.
