Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. It is a time of family connection, celebration, and renewal, and like any other holiday is a perfect time give or decorate with flowers. The question is, what flowers are the right option to celebrate Rosh Hashanah?

There is no specific religious stipulation linking flowers and Rosh Hashanah. While Jewish families will often decorate for Hanukkah with blue and white flowers—just as Christians mark Christmas celebrations by lots of red, green, and white—Rosh Hashanah has even looser floral associations.

FAQ about our Rosh Hashanah Flowers

What is Rosh Hashanah?

While the Gregorian calendar puts the start of the New Year on January 1st, the start of the Jewish New Year—Rosh Hashanah—falls sometime in September or October. Rosh Hashanah literally means “head of the year.” Just as January 1st is a day for celebrating new beginnings for much of the world, Rosh Hashanah is a fresh start for those of the Jewish faith.

When is Rosh Hashanah?

The dates of Rosh Hashanah are determined by the Hebrew calendar rather than the standard Gregorian calendar. Specifically, the holiday falls on the Hebrew dates of 1 and 2 Tishrei. Similar to Hanukkah, which is also determined by a date on the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah tends to move around a bit from one year to the next.

In 2016, Rosh Hashanah began on October 2nd. In the coming years, it will start on September 20th (2017), September 9th (2018), September 29th (2019), and September 18th (2020).

What type of flower arrangement should I send to celebrate Rosh Hashanah?

Perhaps the perfect floral arrangement to send for Rosh Hashanah is a bouquet of 18 roses—most likely in white. In Hebrew, the number 18 means “alive.” It is a lucky number that celebrates life, which makes a bouquet of 18 white roses most appropriate for the start of a new year.
