Every year come September the land of “Milk and Honey” transforms into the land of “Apples and Honey.” Families across Israel gather around the dinner table to toast the New Year with everything pomegranate and a crisp slice of Granny Smith dunked in ooey-gooey-oh-so-delicious honey. Even if your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier or cut the carbs, it’s not quite 5779 yet. Get in those last sinful sweets at these Tel Aviv bakeries offering up the best Rosh Hashanah desserts in town–from fresh-baked challah, to apple tarts, honey cakes, and more (galore).
