Celebrate Rosh Hashanah with a Mini Bus Rental in NYC

FILED UNDER: General Bus Rentals NYC Tips and Tricks




Rosh Hashanah means the beginning of the year. This marks the Jewish New Year. It happens on different days every year. For 2018, it is going to be held on the sunset of September 9, right through nightfall of September 11. In 2019, it will be on September 29 to October 1, and in 2020, it will fall on September 18 to 20.


There are two views on the origins of Rosh Hashanah. For those who believe in Judaism, it marks the day when Adam and Eve were created. It signals the start of humanity's role in the world of God. For non-believers, it marks the start of the agricultural cycle, which begins the economic year.

You should consider getting on a mini bus rental in NYC and celebrate this holiday your way. Where to go to celebrate? How about:


1. Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun


The Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun usually hosts a Rosh Hashanah dinner. If you are new to the Jewish faith, you might want to attend the Beginners Rosh Hashanah dinner, the workshops, and the different activities they have in store for you.


2. Spend the day at home with a 2nd Avenue Deli dinner!


You can go to the 2nd Avenue Deli and bring home a complete Rosh Hashanah dinner. The family owned deli sells Jewish fare for less than $500. It has enough servings for a group of 12 people and includes your choice of mushroom barley soup, chopped liver, turkey, challah, potato kugel, roast chicken, chocolate babka, brisket, carrot tzimmes, and cole slaw.


3. Go challah hunting.


Rosh Hashanah is not complete without Challah, braided bread that has come to symbolize the High Holiday. There are several bakeries that offer challah, such as:


  • Breads Bakery
  • Kossar's Bagels and Bialys
  • Bustan
  • Bouchon Bakery and Cafe
  • William Greenberg Desserts


You can also try the inventive Challah French toast only from The Grey Dog, and the chocolate sourdough twists that you can buy from Amy's Bread.


4. The High Holidays at 92Y


The 92nd Street Y offers main and family services all throughout Rosh Hashanah. They also have a buffet lunch for those who do not want to cook at home. However, their main draw is the services conducted by Rabbi Elka Abrahamson with soloist Josh Nelson.


5. The Jewish Experience


If you want to learn more about the Rosh Hashanah holiday and the Jewish culture in general, then head on to the Manhattan Jewish Experience. They offer Rosh Hashanah services and dinners. They also have several other programs such as lectures, parties and other events for you to attend.


New York City usually declares Rosh Hashanah as a holiday, closing public schools during the duration. This is a good time to get in touch with your Jewish roots, or get to know more about the Jewish culture. Call Custom Coach and Limo, get a mini bus rental in NYC, and try these places out with your family and friends. You can also go on a long distance trip even if you are not Jewish!
