Rosh Hashanah Supermarket Price Guide 

Where are you likely to get the best deals for 2017?

rosh hashanah price comparison

Rosh Hashanah budgeting is enough to pull anyone’s hair out.  If you are one of the lucky ones, your employer might give you supermarket shopping vouchers (Heb: tlooshim) and if he does it means you can cut your supermarket bill with a smile.

To help you out, we’ve done the legwork, so to speak, doing an online comparison.  Online shopping options are certainly the answer to the working community and supermarket online sites have improved considerably since our 2016 comparison. The down-side is you have to know Hebrew to navigate them but this is a great opportunity for you to learn new words and their spelling.

Rami Levy has the reputation as being the cheapest and Shufersal the most expensive.  We added the Victory chain to our comparison too.  Yes, there are other supermarket chains out there and we would love to be able to include each and everyone of them in this comparison but our manpower limitations prevent it.  If you are willing to offer 10 or 15 minutes of your time to compare these exact items in your supermarket, send them to us and we will publish them.

Note: these prices, from the websites, are accurate as of September 6th, 2017.  Items may rise or fall in price between now and the New Year.

Availability of Merchandise

Before every Rosh Hashanah and Pesach, there is a shortage of fresh produce.  This year meat and poultry are expected to be in short supply – our advice to you – start laying in supplies now.

Fruit and vegetable prices will rise.  Apples, pomegranates, and in-fact everything will sky rocket 2 -3 days before.  If you have a shuk (Eng: fruit and veg market) near you, you might get cheaper produce.

Paying for your Groceries

We are not overly fond of paying for groceries on installments (Heb: tashloomim).  If you eat it now you should pay for it now – that’s our philosophy and method that has saved us thousands on food over the years.  There are two exceptions to our rule;  Rosh Hashanah and Pesach.  The Pesach grocery bill is astronomical and Rosh Hashanah is not cheap either. So we allow ourselves tashloomim for these 2 holiday – 6 installments each.  As one finishes the second one starts.  

Chag Sameach! May you and your loved ones be inscribed for a good year, health and blessings.
