Kosher Industry Turns Attention to Fall High Holy Days

New York…Although Rosh Hashanah this year will not happen until the eve of September 26th with all the major holidays like Yom Kippur and Succoth taking place in October, the kosher food industry is busy preparing for the lucrative Fall holidays. One retailer already secured various gourmet honey products in anticipation of launching his holiday display in late August. He noted: “We’re still busy responding to the summer barbecue season but at the same time we have put in all our orders for the holidays.” Israeli hotels are reporting that reservations are on pace to reach pre-Covid levels. Airline bookings to destinations like Tel Aviv, Dubai, and several major cities in Europe are running well ahead of recent years. One travel expert speculated that the “late holidays'' means that many people will be seeking to spend the holidays in warmer climates.
