General translation:

They used to call Rosh Hashana “Moed” (time). For Rosh Hashana they cooked barkoksh.

She mentions the blessings on the signs. In addition, they ate fish and called them “Hut”, which contrary to other communities who feared of ʿAyin Hara (evil eye), refrained from using the name ‘fish’ and called it “fi uj l’adu” (=in face of the enemy).
