Why do we say honey is Healthy, Jewish, and Healthy and Love?

    Healthy: Honey is produced from the nectar of flowers and contains minute amounts of pollen. This nectar-pollen combination is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-microbial. Many say that the minute exposures to local pollen also help with seasonal allergies. Honey is also rich in vitamins and minerals.

    Jewish: Because honey has been featured in the observance of Rosh HaShanah for 1000s of years, it clearly has cultural significance in our tradition. Indeed, it is the only food that will never go bad, and hence, its very nature calls us to contemplate the eternal. What are our lives for? What is the message, or legacy, we want to leave in the world, in our families, community? Honey is also the product of the blessing of the whole previous season – it relies on the sun and the rain to make the flowers grow and produce flowers. It takes 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey! So we really are tasting a condensed version of the blessing of the whole previous season, while saying “May it be a good and healthy year,” about the upcoming season, as we put honey on our tongues.

    Love: Honeybees are unique in that all their labor only does good in the year. When they collect pollen to feed their young, they actually are pollinating and thus supporting human and broader ecosystems. We can try to mirror this is our labor, trying to make all the labor that supports us also only bring blessing – and do no harm – to others.
