We've got the perfect way to serve the simanim and a beautiful simanim card download!

New edited version for 2018!

This is Just What Your Rosh Hashanah Table Needs (Plus! Free Simanim Cards!) WeThere's a lot of things we love about this Rosh Hashanah table. First…those perfectly portioned simanim. No more passing around the bowls and checking if everyone received a portion/piece. Plus…don't the simanim, when served this way, make the table so pretty.

(And yes, those most adorable ever apple-shaped personal honey dishes from Set Your Table totally help). See below for the sources of all the dishes used in this tablescape.

Download Simanim Cards for Rosh HashanahNext, what about when it's time to say the 'Yehi Ratzons' for the simanim. Don't you wish you had a card for each person, rather than passing around the machzorim?

Leek Patties
  • 3 large leeks (or 4 small ones white & green parts only)
  • water, as needed
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon bread crumbs or matzah meal
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • oil for frying
  1. Cut off the dark green part off the leeks and discard. Slice the leeks in half lengthwise and wash thoroughly. Cut the leek into strips and dice.
  2. Place leeks into a pot with enough water to cover. Add oil and bring to a boil.
  3. Drain very, very well, pressing out excess water.
  4. Add eggs, crumbs, salt, and sugar. Form the batter into patties.
  5. Pour a thin layer of oil into a skillet over medium heat and bring to a frying temperature. Slip patties into hot oil and fry until browned on one side. Flip patties and brown the other side.
  6. Serve at room temperature or cold.
This is, surprisingly, a kids favorite. Similar to a latke, this also tastes good at room temperature.

Roasted Beet Cubes;
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Wrap however many  beets you might need in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place beets into a baking pan; roast for about 1 hour. Beets are ready when they can be pierced with a fork. Let cool. (You can do this step ahead of time. Roasted beets will stay fresh, refrigerated, for 3–4 days.) Unwrap beets. Peel and cut into large cubes.

  1. When I click on download for simanim cards, no option to print comes up..is anyone else having this problem? It’s just giving me pic of 3 different simanim cards..

  2. Hello! So lovely – thank you for the gorgeous inspiration. I cannot find the right sized rectangle plates anywhere… the CB2 ones are much larger proportions. Do you have any suggestions?
