Sundown on Wednesday marked the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
To celebrate, EL AL, the national airline of Israel is serving passengers honey cake, a traditional dessert to usher in a sweet new year.
The honey cake, along with honey and sliced apples – another symbolic holiday treat – is being offered through September 19th, the day after Yom Kippur – the Jewish Day of Atonement.
Throughout the holiday period, the airline expects to serve more than 550 pounds of honey cake, more than 300 pounds of sliced apples and more than 170 pounds of honey.
EL AL does not fly on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur.
