Forget 2016 (that's so far away!)—get ready to party like it's 5776. This week, the shofar is sounding and the Jewish year is changing from 5775 to 5776. Honey bottles will be emptied, apples sliced, cakes baked, and bottles of Manischewitz drained.

Celebrate the new year with traditional Rosh Hashanah foods—beets, fish heads, pomegranates, carrots, leeks, dates, and, of course, apple cake—or show off your alternative side with something more New Age and fusion-y. And even if you aren't celebrating the holiday, these first bright fall days are reason enough to invite your friends over, cook dishes you missed over the summer, and reflect on the past year.
