Sephardic foods at Rosh Hashanah's dinner called “yehi ratzones”

Sephardic Studies Research Coordinator Ty Alhadeff was featured in an article by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) discussing the Sephardic traditions of Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year.

Alhadeff explains in detail the meaning behind Rosh Hashanah dinner called “yehi ratzones” — “may it be God’s will” — which calls for a kind of mini-seder in which a special blessing is said before eating certain ceremonial foods.
