The Jewish tradition has preserved an ancient custom of eating dates on the evening of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) accompanied by the request: "May it be your will, that there come an end to our enemies". While on the Roman coins the date palm is a symbol of Jewish defeat, on the evening of Rosh Hashanah the date expresses the hope for victory over enemies.
