The first of our videos on Jewish festivals looks at Rosh Hashanah. In part 1 Rabbi Geoffrey Shisler of the New West End Synagogue in London introduces Rosh Hashanah and what it means in the Jewish faith. In part 2, Silvia Nacamulli, a well known expert on Italian Jewish food prepares one of her favourite dishes for Rosh Hashanah, "Silvia's Chicken with Pomegranate". In part 3, Sula Leon, cookery teacher and author, prepares "Sula's Apple Filo" one of her favourite dishes for the festival.

Following our series on Rosh Hashanah comes Yom Kippur. Once again, in Part 1, we have an introduction to this holy day from Rabbi Geoffrey Shisler who explains the meaning and practices of Yom Kippur, the "Day of Atonement". In Part 2, Silvia Nacamulli and Sula Leon discuss the foods they prepare for the festive meal and the different ways in which they break the Yom Kippur fast.
