Jewish families in New Zealand continue to observe the various feasts and festivals in the Jewish calendar. At Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) it is customary to eat challah, a special bread whose round shape symbolises the full year to come. These loaves were specially baked for Wellington’s Dixon Street Delicatessen for observance of Rosh Hashana.
