Traditional Flowers for Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. It is one of the most sacred holidays of the Jewish calendar. It is a two-day festivity that involves grand celebrations. People invite friends and family members to their homes to perform prayers and enjoy festive delicacies. Since the holiday celebrates a new beginning, adding flowers or floral arrangements to your home is considered auspicious and more holy. And even if you have been invited, gifting something revered such as flowers is customary. 

However, there is no official flower as per religious stipulations that you must opt for. But any flower that exhibits a bounteous or hopeful feeling is a perfect choice, while many religious Jews use white and blue flowers. 

Given below is the list of some traditional Rosh Hashanah flowers to inspire your gift gifting this year. 


Lilies for Rosh Hashanah

White lilies are the common choice for Rosh Hashanah celebrations. Being a symbol of peace, purity, and grace, they are appropriate to welcome a new year full of new opportunities and possibilities. A bouquet bustling with fresh white lilies will make a wonderful choice as thanks-giving for the invitation as well as it will grab attention as part of an arrangement on the center table. Exuding rich vibrance and a new start, these majestic flowers are one of the thoughtful choices to mark the very essence of the holy holidays.
