Traditional Jewish Holiday Food Ideas

by Jeremy Banks Evolutesix

Have any plans for the holidays? Most of the time, people would prefer going on a kosher tour, kosher vacations, or kosher riverboat cruises during the holidays. However, it’s always still a good time when we decide to celebrate at home and cook up a feast. Although we have certain rules about which types of food can be eaten on each holiday, there is a wide variety of foods and recipes associated with Jewish holidays. Here is our list of some top traditional Jewish holiday food ideas that you can try out this upcoming holiday season!



The Shabbat is a time to sit down and enjoy a delicious meal with family and friends. The best way to celebrate this special day is by cooking traditional Challah bread. This type of bread has been eaten for thousands of years and is still popular today. It's typically made from flour, water, yeast, eggs, salt and oil.

Challah breads are often braided or twisted, which is how they got their name: "Challah" means "twist" in Hebrew. The tradition of eating challah bread on Shabbat goes back to the time of the Temple in Jerusalem.

Beef Brisket
Rosh Hashanah, which means "head of the year," is one of the High Holidays and is celebrated by Jews all over the world. It's a time to reflect on what you've done in the last year and to make resolutions for the new year. It's also a time to eat delicious food!

The brisket is slow-cooked in a braising liquid with onions and garlic, then removed from the pot and subjected to a final roasting process that gives it its characteristic crispy texture. This meaty dish will keep you full for days—perfect for your Rosh Hashanah celebration!

Potato Latkes
Hanukkah is the celebration of a miracle: God's protection of the Jews from their enemies. The miracle happened when the Jews had only enough oil to light their lamps for one night, but it lasted for eight days.

A traditional Hanukkah food is potato latkes, which are fried pancakes made from grated potatoes and onions. They are served with applesauce and sour cream. Potato latkes are very easy to make—you just need grated potatoes, onions (or leeks), flour, eggs, salt and pepper, oil, and some oil for frying them up in hot oil until golden brown on both sides!

Matzo Ball Soup
Matzo Ball Soup is a classic Passover dish. It's a great way to use up leftovers, and it's easy to make in bulk so that everyone can have their own bowl of soup. 

It is made with matzo balls, chicken broth, onions, carrots and parsley. Matzo balls are small dumplings that are made with matzo meal and eggs. The mixture is then rolled into balls and dropped into boiling water where they cook for about 15 minutes. When they are done cooking they should float to the top of the pot.
